War on Photography – know your rights as a photographer…


photographersrights small War on Photography   know your rights as a photographer...

The fact that a War on Photography blog actually exists – to fight against the erosion of the right to photograph in public spaces – is a bit of a sad sign of the times. Let’s hope it’s a temporary thing, eh? Meanwhile, here’s a few resources which should help you get the most out of your lovely camera. (If you know of any more, please add them into the comments).

 As the flyer states, there are not very many legal restrictions on what can be photographed when in public view. Most attempts at restricting photography are done by lower-level security and law enforcement officials acting way beyond their authority. Note that neither the Patriot Act nor the Homeland Security Act have any provisions that restrict photography. Similarly, some businesses have a history of abusing the rights of photographers under the guise of protecting their trade secrets. These claims are almost always meritless because entities are required to keep trade secrets from public view if they want to protect them.
