I have a Nokia 6234 which I shoot a lot of video with, I have some interesting stuff of mostly just random but some include that subway woman going at me about the "refilled drink" and a mcdonalds boss screaming at staff, I often just knock the record button if there looks to be somthing interesting (usually aint so I delete away) but sometimes there is a gem or two....and piles of just boring really rude shopkeepers.

Iif I shove them up on Youtube or revver, can say mcdonalds or subway come after me with some legal suit??

If you're in a building, you're there as a guest of the shop owner for the purpose of retailing/whatever, and recording him without permission is an invasion of privacy.  If said individual is in the street or public place, then it's could be construed a nuisance if you bother them or act in mischievous way (eg recording cleavages or other lewd behaviour).

Someone could (eventually) come after you in a civil case, but if you're posting anonymously on utube, well....

Plus you would be a foreign national trying to get info out of an american company.... it will take time.

Many thanks, While they are fun to gawk at with mates, I'll refrain from the Youtube for the "shopkeepers series"

As for random acts of bad and dangerous driving and other "in the street" stuff, I'm assuming that's ok?
 it's not cleavages and "i dropped my phone" stuff, mostly cars doing really dodgy and dangerous things.

On TV shoots (I've been on a few) even people who are not working on the project are required to fill in a release form, if they are recogniseable on the screen.  Been quite funny seeing PA's running after people to get them to sign a form.

Basically, if the person is recognizable then you need to obtain permission from them.
Same goes for showing buildings (inside) or people's private property.

Of course, many youtube posters don't care about obtaining permission :)

If the argument is privacy, there are some other instances in which you don't have to get permission, such as "it is not prejudicing the interests of the individual concerned" and "complying with this principle is not reasonably practical in the particular case" - see the principle 3 on the privacy principles page on the Privacy Commission website.

Information does include photos: see it is also about photos: see personal information definition and this case: "Shopper complains about his photograph being taken for publicity purposes".

Also exempt is news media (does blogging count as news media?).

If you decide that privacy is ok, watch you don't defame anyone.

If those cans are normally 99 cents than the one on the left is 66.
Edit: Interesting photos though.

Unless you have asked those people's express permission, you cannot as this comes under the Privacy Act 1993. (It breaches their privacy)
You could be in very deep trouble if they are uploaded.
