    What are the legal implications of taking a photograph of a celebrity?

    Can you go to a live show or event take snaps of a celebrity and then sell those images?
    Is there any kind of law against selling an image of something or someone?

    I know you couldn't use that celebrity to then advertise something but what i'm wondering about is if say you sold the image of someone famous as a poster or printed picture is that okay?

    I don't know about other countries, but in the UK ther is no right to privacy, you can take photos of anyone in a  public place.  If you want to use them commercially, if the person is recogniseable, you will need a model release form
