Photographing people and publishing the images is only very vaguely regulated.

Can I Shoot Footage in Public without Consent?

There allegedly are laws protecting the sancticity of the home, but we could so far not find a clear source.

Can I publish Photos taken of Strangers without Consent?

Yes, if they are not the primary subject and the photo does show them in an inappropriate or vulnerable position. If they are a figure of public interest, like a politician or celebrity, the consent before publishing is not required.

Can I use Street Photos commercially?

Commercial use follows the same rules as non-commercial use, unless it is promotional (in advertisement or similar). For promotional use, consent is required.
