How would anyone be able to claim it was them in that image? If one can be recognized and it is clearly an image of them then I think you have a claim to using a model's release, but otherwise I can't see it. Now a days you also might have this issue with property releases. I understand that the Eiffel Tower's lighting is protected and so night images of the tower are not allowed without permission. There laws against photographing buildings in Mexico. IMHO, we would need a full time copyright lawyer to keep all of the world's potential problems at bay in this area. Since that isn't going to happen, I think we need to go with common sense and reasonable expectations and remove things on request.
