This paper focuses on photographs and the relation between copyright protection on the one hand, and the right to personality and privacy on the other. The exercise of the rights of copyright holders in photographs often infringes the aforementioned rights of the depicted person. In the following text there is an overview upon the international and european law that protects copyright, as well as on the Greek Copyright Act and the provisions about the photographers’ rights. Thereafter, an analysis is made upon the notions of the rights to personality and privacy, the legal framework of their protection and the question of which acts related to photography may constitute an insult to these freedoms. Lastly, the study illustrates the justifying reasons that legalize the infringment of the right to personality and privacy, such as the consent or the special provisions of law.
