Arkansas bill SB79 has apparently passed TO ENACT THE PERSONAL RIGHTS PROTECTION ACT; AND TO PROTECT THE PROPERTY RIGHTS OF AN INDIVIDUAL TO THE USE OF THE INDIVIDUAL'S NAME, VOICE, SIGNATURE, AND LIKENESS. http://www.arkleg.state.ar.us/assembly/2015/2015R/Bills/SB79.pdf To quote the ASMP: ( http://asmp.org/sb79 ) The implications of this bill are staggering. For example, an image showing recognizable people posted to the Internet for a use that would not require written consent anywhere else in the world could leave you open to a lawsuit just because someone in Arkansas could view it online. SB-79 places an unprecedented burden on all photographers whose work could be viewed within the state of Arkansas to either get explicit consent from every individual whose likeness appears in all of their photographs or risk defending themselves in a lawsuit where they will have to shoulder the burden of proving the use of their photographs qualifies as an exempted use There are some "Fair Use" exceptions, but they are very specific (and need a lawyer to interpret for the rest of us) and don't appear to cover much of what is currently regarded as "street photography". For example they allow images "Solely to depict the individual's role as a member of the public if the individual is not named or otherwise singled out", which would pretty much rule out any street photo which has a person as the main subject, since that would "single them out".
