Dissemination of the image requires the permission of the person depicted. However, there are a few exceptions to this rule.
– Honorarium for posing for a photo. The received money is synonymous with consenting to the use of the image.
– Famous people. You can, for example, take pictures of them if they are at work, without any trouble. This applies even to politicians at electoral rallies or musicians during the concert.
– Audience. Fortunately, when you take a picture of a landscape, and someone just goes in the distance, you do not have to chase him with the agreement to use the image 😉
If you are looking for images on the internet and you are not sure if you can use them in one form or another, use the advanced search and select the appropriate option under the “right to use”.

Scientific goals – you use someone’s content to clarify a topic, for example by conducting classes or training.
Polemics – it is instinctive to quote someone’s statement when we disagree with him. Fortunately, it’s allowed.
The third case is the so-called “rights of the genre of creativity”. It means that the use of a quote is allowed in the case of an independent work referring explicitly to someone else’s work, or, above all, in a parody or cabaret.
