Lets say i took a photo of a man walking his dog, i dont know the man and i havent asked for permission, is this ok?
In the UK - that would be legal provided the person is an adult, as the photographer owns the copyright - when a minor is used, then you need a signed form from the legal guardian.
However, in France - people have a right to privacy and they can prevent your using unauthorised photos.
Other countries will vary as well.
