Default School Performance photography - can they do this?

Hello -
I photograph drama performances in our town for the local schools.
The school system has given me permission to post these images and
offer them for sale to the students and families involved. Nobody is
supposed to be allowed a camera/video device in the theater during
performance. However, we know that this does not occur.. I hear and
see snapping during the entire performance. Recently, a person has
taken the photographs and offered them 'for sale' on the Internet.
This has offended me and the school system involved. Can they do
this? It makes me think that if this is the case I'll go to a wedding
and photograph and offer the photos for sale to the bride and groom
for less than the official photographer.. (never would-kidding) I
follow a rule of ethics...

So your ethics are that mums and dads cant take pics of their kids
performing?

Stopping them is a real ******* act. Not many can afford to pay just to
get pics to send to grandparents or keep for memories etc

If it's a public school, and a performance is open to the public, there
isn't much that can done about it. The parents of the "performers" would
have standing to object to images of their minor children being sold.
Generally, weddings are not open to the public, so an uninvited person would
not be permitted to photograph the wedding. You could photograph the wedding
party when they come outside the church and cross the line onto public
property. But I suspect sales of such limited images would be nil.
