Which part of Hong Kong law regulates the question where and I can take photos of people and what I can do with them later (i.e. when do I need a model release signed).
I have checked the copyright law and the privacy law but none of those seem to apply to the situation. The privacy law mainly deals with the collection of data. The commissioner himself published a book that states that simply taking a photo of someone does not constitute "collection". The copyright law also does not seem to apply since I am not violating copyright when taking someone's photo.
Can someone point me to any relevant part of the current legislation that would shed light in regards to when I need a model release of a person?
