    Why are you even quoting von hannover / JK rowling caselaw, both of those cases refered to publishing a photograph and the remedy being damages/injunction.

    Absolutely 0% applicability to a photo taken for private purposes.
    The law works on a system called precedent. Where cases aren't completely anologous then they may be considered as pursuasive. I've said repeatedly that this would not apply to the OP's situation which is clearly a private situation. We've clearly gone off on a tangent here and are talking in general terms. I merely pointed out that they are applicable in certain instances, ie one's that aren't private purposes. I just pointed out where the mere 'taking of a photograph in a public place' could be actionable. See all the above posts.

    It is illegal to take pictures of somebody without their permission. So legally you can ask them to delete them.

    And it;s your own fault. Get over it.
    who told you that because it;s untrue in a public place

    Please tell me this is some sort of joke >_<



    For what exactly?
    Well unless the laws have changed since I was last interested in following them I'm sure you had to have permission to take someone's photo one-on-one. I thought that was the reason why professional photographers have to ask whether it is ok to take your photo.

    I could well be wrong though...I'm just sure that this was true.

    That's because professional photographers are likely to publish them afterwards (ie on a website to show off what they do).

    You seem to be a bit confused about merely taking a photo and publishing it.

    There mere act of taking a photograph of another person has never been an offence under UK law.

    Except when that photograph is likely to be useful for terrorist purposes, or is part of a sustained course of conduct that amounts to harassment or is of the individual performing a 'private act' But I digress. Generally speaking, you are absolutely correct.

    No it isn't.

    Well, you can ask anything, but they certainly don't have to oblige you. Moreover, if it was - as you suggest - a criminal offence, forcing the deletion of evidence of that would be slightly questionable, don't you think?

    Lol at the people saying "its illegal to take pictures of people without their consent". Go and ask for the hours of CCTV being taken of you everyday to be deleted!

    The police would just laugh your arse out of the station.
    ..and hopefully take a few photos of your face for further amusement.

    (Original post by lufc89)
    The only people it could be reported to is whoever is in charge at the place of work because they can then see if they can obtain CCTV footage of the men and forward it to the police.
    Seriously, some people on here are stupid.

    Do you really think if the OP complained to the manager they would then take the time to trawl through CCTV to hand over to the Police who would then spend a lot of time and resources trying to track down these 'criminals' and bring them to justice for taking photos of an eyebrowless freak in a supermarket?
    Do you really think that is how the world works?:eek3: :eek3: :eek3:

    Refuse to serve them/others next time? I'm sure your store has a policy where mocking staff is justifiable for denial of service.

    Grammar.

    A lack of it, due to a more maths-fond side of you and spelling and punctuation become subsidiary haha.

    Oh and to the 3 people who quoted me about the catfood throwing incident;

    He had no reason (unless my smile and hello were offensive to him?) as far as I could tell.

    And he didn't say sorry and I spent too long being shocked and waiting for an apology to ask him what was the issue!
