Quick question. I believe, but am not certain, that if you sell a photo with anyone in it you need to have a signed model release form from them along with some (often token) compensation.

So if you, for example, had a book with a photo in it of the Washington Monument with people in it who were identifiable but hadn't given signed consent, you couldn't use it, correct?

These people are in a public place so I don't think it matters.

That's what a lot of people think, but it isn't true.

Here's a link to a Steve's Digicam note about it, but I was looking for something more as well.
