Right to privacy of commisioned photographs

Post by AndyJ » Fri Jan 29, 2010 1:07 am

Section 85 of the CDPA 1988 gives the person who commissions for private and domestic puposes the taking of photographs, the right not to have them published etc. Can anyone tell me of any caselaw which clarifies what constitutes 'private and domestic purposes'. especially with regard to wedding photography?

Just to clarify, I am aware of the case Pollard v the Photographic Co. 1885 40 Ch D 345, but I was thinking of something slightly more recent!
