This is a case where Michael Douglas and his wife Catherine Zeta Jones took legal action against Hello for publishing wedding photos of the couple without their permission.
Catherine said it ruined her perfect day.
The magazine remarked that the two were film stars and had long since waived any right to privacy.
There was exclusivity for OK to publish photos and security to ensure no other cameras were there. It was a GBP 1 000 000 contract.
Rupert Thorpe – son of Jeremy – sneaked in and took photos.,
It was not about privacy but profit.
Hello was able to publish the photos. There was no privacy since there was duty of confidence. Privacy only arises in private occasions. There must be a promise not to publish photos.
There were 250 wedding guests. not very private
The coupele were going to publish photos ANYWAY – they wanted to do. It was a question of whethe rit was their sleection of snaps or not
