- Datagod, this image is a photograph of a television screen broadcasting these people. We don't accept screen shots at Commons. They are considered a derivative and the broadcaster owns the copyright. You can find out more at Commons:Licensing#Derivative_works. You might be able take photographs when you see the subject in person (depending on which province, see Commons:Country_specific_consent_requirements#Canada). I know the entire United States is fine in a public situation (or private with their permission). Royalbroil 03:47, 27 July 2018 (UTC)
