To answer the OP question, it varies from country to country.

On another note, I understand photojournalists, photographing conflicts, delivering news to the world. It's a career, life-threatening even when covering wars, but for average Joe, camera hobbyists, what is the purpose of photographing random strangers you found on the street? What story are you going to tell anyway? An uncle went to the market buying groceries, a mother on a bus, etc.

Art?

Yes art,

The first two are EXCELLENT. Nice pictorial retort to a very ignorant question.

Well do you feel ok for some strangers to snap a photo of your daughter or wife or etc on the street and then put it on youtube or the internet? It's art, so it must be ok? Those doing that kind of stuff are ignorant IMO.

You would do well to actually look at the great candid street photographs taken since photography began.
