Re: NY taxi -- location release necessary?

You use the term "location release." I assume you are asking about a model release.

The need for a model release is based upon how the photo will be used not where it was taken. The taxi was on a public street and you have the right to photograph it an whoever is inside it. What you do not have is the right to publish the photo(s) for advertising or trade use without a release. You should read this:
