    Tiger woods sues and loses.

    Just be aware that anyone can sue anyone for any reason at any time. The cost to defend an action can force you to capitulate even if you would have won had it gone to trial.

    Thankfully, we're not sue-happy up here in Canada, like in your country...

    Re: releases for buildings

    For commercial use, a release is necessary for certain buildings. The Chrysler building comes to mind, as well as the lighting display on the Eiffel Tower. I am sure there are many more. If the building is part of a skyline or side view and not the central focus of the image, my understanding is then no release is required.
