What are the rules in relation to images in the news?

I am toying with the idea of writing a hub about something which is presently in the news here is Oz. What are the rules in connection with images in the news? Are they similar to all other images? Do I have to get permission from the newspaper, from the persons shown in the images? One sees the same images across a number of stations or media. Does that mean it is okay to copy?

    Thank you for your response. That is a bit disappointing as it would be a massive task to get permission for several photos one would need. Maybe I will have to take a different tack about the subject. Thanks again.
