I think you give consent to certain things when you buy the tickets. Images being one of them.....

You give consent by filling out the claim form and claiming the prize from the lottery. In most states that consent allows the lottery to use your name and likeness for publicity.  There's a slim chance it might even allow the store that sold you the ticket to do so. It definitely doesn't require your consent to let a store in another state do so just because you came in and checked the numbers.

That said,  the guy was in a public place and had no reasonable expectation of privacy, and anyone who took his picture or shot video is free to display it for non-commercial uses, including editorial use, which is what was done in this case.

It was still a lousy thing for the store to do. The store selling awinning ticket may be required to submit any security footage to the lottery, but releasing it to the public is strictly their own choice. If I were to win, one of the first things on my to do list would be call the store and tell the manager that there was a fat tip waiting if nobody ran their mouth about who they thought might have won.

    Just saw a news story where they tracked the winner and his coworkers down to their Va DOT workplace. He is back on the job? Can he get a flight to Arizona? Thats amazing. My daughter says she shops at that same convenience store in Upper Marlboro. Guess he is not a relative. Darn!

                        I'll be trying Automatic Writing to get the winning lottery numbers.

                        Automatic writing  is an alleged psychic ability allowing a person to produce written words without consciously writing. The words are claimed to arise from a subconscious, spiritual or supernatural source.

                          That would be my guess.
