  1. I see stock photo's that have been accepted where there's lots of random people in the photo's. I know that each person needs a written permission to use their photo's, so are these photographers asking each person on the street if they have permission to use their photo's? That would be crazy ridiculous. I moved to the Philippines a year ago, and often I'm left not taking photo's that I otherwise would because of all the people in them. There are people everywhere here, so getting photo's without people in the shot is very difficult often. Also, it would be nice to take photo's of people on the streets or whatever without worrying about having each person sign something. Aside from the fact that would be tedious, very few people in this country would actually understand why I'm asking them to sign something, or even what it's for and asking would cause a lot of confusion, even if my wife were to translate what I was wanting. People here don't care about copyright laws, and most don't even know what copyright protection is, or care about it at all. Are these photo's I'm seeing all for editorial use only, or is there some special thing happening here that I'm not aware of that's allowing people to use photo's that contain a lot of random people on the street without asking all of their permissions? Thanks in advance.
