The images of non public figures and random pictures that journalist may fiind on the internet, may requir permisson right?  I found this article that slams the idea of people freely taking images and using them without permission. James (Jim) Colburn is a digital photograher and journalist. Check out the article

We'll be talking more about the issue of how photographs get appropriated in the second part of the course, where we will deal with the intellectual property rights of professional photojournalists as well as the rights to privacy of average citizens who might not want to see their Facebook photos reprinted.
