This would heinously violate the copyright of the photographer. Celebrities are certainly not "public property," and even if they were, photographs of them are not.

Only vaguely, if at all. You would lose that lawsuit, particularly if the work is being sold or if a political organization is benefitting from it in any way. I'd go the extra few feet and buy one that isn't rights-managed, if you really need it.

this subject is not without merit.
imagery is still there for others to consider
using or not...and how important is it?
just slapping out some image without thought
can be legally devastating for the slapper.
i ran into one of those cyber police, whose job
is going around in the net to catch infringers.
scary!!! there was an entire building of them...
doing this for a job....for hire by the entertainment
industry.
so now one act can throw one's life into
legal chaos.
not a dead subject at all.
i agree getting the okee-dokee certificate is best.

Hehe, I just wonder about the hype that celebrities are public property because of their very nature. But for a legal point of view, they are not in the strictest sense.

Hypocrites are always abound in these types of legalities.
Good case in point if there was a legal battle, but I believe the photographer will win because of this.
