I want to design and market a souvenir item that will use pictures of various buildings (businesses) and some interior shots of them. Do I need permission? Can they sue me if i don't get permission?

My response:

No. You don't need permission to take pictures of buildings to sell them. You are selling your "Artistic expression." Take a look at some postcards of some famous landmarks in your neck of the woods. These are all artistic expressions. The only thing you need permission for is photographing and selling likenesses of private citizens. But, if you want to sell the picture of your "Geeky" mayor or govornor, then you don't need permission because different rules apply to non-private, public servants.

Snap away !!
