portret law in france
The general rule is almost the same than in the US and UK for people.
You need a release to use their picture unless it's a public event and you are using the picture for journalistic purpose.
There are some difference on intellectual property, building properties etc (for instance the lightning on the Eiffel Tower at night are copyrighted).
