Should photographers obscure the registration plates of cars spotted on the street in their photographs before uploading these on the internet?

Yes - for all vehicles
Yes - but only for main subject of the photograph
Yes - but only cars regularly spotted or at locations (cafes etc) where groups of exotics are regularly seen
Yes - but only if owners specifically request it
No - there's no point because everyone knows the cars anyway
No - it's a free country and I can take any photo I like
No - who cares: what's on TV tonight?

you definitely haven't broken any laws, that's just common sense....the only issue is do you want to get beaten up or not :)

i'd have told them to FO and kept taking photos...but then, i tend to be confrontational.



they won't tell you off, they'll just tell you to buy your own LOL

i don't see why there is a need to be confrontational about it, simply ask 98octance to remove the plate, he'll happly do it.

but then PP you not scared of being beaten up? LOL

I just had a quick look at the law relating to privacy.  Simply stated, in Australia, there is no tort (i.e. civil wrong) of privacy (see the High Court decision of ABC v Lenah Game Meats).   There is an implied right of freedom of speech in the Australian Constitution and the Victoria Charter of Human Rights reinforces this freedom of expression.

Whoa... blast from the very distant past!  I did my research essay for Constitutional and Administrative Law on Lenah Game Meats! The good ol' implied freedom of political communication.  Have you also looked at Lange

I recall studying that case a few years ago, but it's not really relevant to this sort of thing.  Also, there's no need to go into the law any further for now.
