email, copyright, etc.

Aside from the legalities of the question, it seems to me that individual
privacy interests -- and courtesy -- would require a person to obtain such
permission before publishing photos on-line, yet I have seen a number of 
photo galleries (presumably created without permission of all the 
subjects). Does anyone else have an opinion on the matter?

One new problem in privacy that just hit me today was that people need to 
ask before making one's email address a hotlink. Someone apparently made my 
address -- which is a work account -- a hypertext link and I didn't know 
that until my HR person showed up today to have a little chat after the 
page came up when they did random searches of the web for our company name. 
Whether or not it's legal, this is a game and it's courtesy to ask 
permission before using any part of a person's identity in any way, as you 
never know what problems you may innocently cause.
