For those of us in the UK, this is pretty useful: http://www.sirimo.co.uk/ukpr.php

I'm not sure if any of the advice is out of date though...

Canadian photographers may want to try this site:
http://ambientlight.ca/laws.shtml

And continuing the theme for NSW photographers

The jurisdictional issue is a very real one, not only between countries, but even between states or provinces. The Quebec Charter of Rights and Freedoms contains a right to privacy. This right was held by the Supreme Court of Canada to require photographers to get the permission of their subjects before publishing the photo. As a result, the law around use of photographs of individual is much different in that province than in the rest of Canada.

If anyone knows of a similar publication for the Republic of Ireland I would be very interested to know about it...

Roland,

The only reasonably accurate description of Irish Phototgraphers rights is on the link below -
http://www.digitalrights.ie/2006/05/09/photographers-rights/

If this isn't enough try the APUG forum, they have a very active Irish section with some very well informed members

Best of Luck

I'm definitely going to look into this book. Hopefully it doesn't just cover professional photographers, but also just you're on a mountain and get the most scenic photo ever and want to publish it. Thanks for the post.
