In the United States, the ability to publish a photograph for a newsworthy purpose of interest to the public is very broadly interpreted so as to protect the right of free speech found in the First Amendment. For example, in the US, the courts do not require the photograph to show a person described in the article, book, etc., there just needs to be some relationship between the subject discussed in the publication and the photograph.

In conclusion, photographs that show a recognizable person can only be used in the following situations:

1.For commercial purposes if they have a signed model release from the person shown in the image;
2.In the USA they can be used for editorial purposes if they meet the following conditions:

•the photo is taken in a public place
•it is used to illustrate a factual article, book, news broadcast, documentary, or film concerning a matter that is newsworthy or of public interest
•there is some connection between the subject discussed in the publication and the photograph.
