What do you do if they are deceased? :?

Use the pic.
Once someone's gone the pic is open, unless the copyright is owned by someone else, the snapper or agency for example.

Oh, and it's legally impossible to slander or libel the deceased.

:twisted:

Even if she is dead, which i doubt, the photographer still has copyright. Even if the person is deceased and took the photo themself you still normally need permission from next of kin,

i think clarification on my first point CC.
Can we use pictures taken from the web?
film stars, sporting hero's?
Comedy characters?
Well, normally with all the above you are then infringing on copyright laws anyway.....

I think the rule stands at no useage of other, non-celebraty, member's photo's unless given expressed permission from the person in the photo. It is more PERSEC than anything else.....

Most film stars, sporting heros and comedy characters are already well known, so PERSEC is out of the window, but as i said, then you start to touch on copyright issues.
