    NYC Rules Finalized

    Thanks Jeff for the PDF link to the finalized official rules for filming and photographing in New York City. As pointed out in the forum, the city FAQ PDF is somewhat conciliatory in tone, but it does contain language that apparently makes it illegal for a photographer to set down their bag.

    I wonder if this means it’s also now illegal to set down any bag if it contains a camera-equipped cel phone? As ever, vague wording opens the door to potentially strange abuses in the future — and as the video clip below points out, in some cases the rules require photographers to do the impossible, such as leave eight feet of open passage space on a six-foot-wide sidewalk.





    Use an iPhone in Tennessee, Go to Jail

    “Here’s a guy who takes me out of the car and arrests me in front of my kids. For what? To take a picture of a police officer?” said Scott Conover.

    This WJHL story asks the same question, reporting that Conover was arrested for snapping a cel phone picture of Johnson County Sheriff’s Deputy Starling McCloud — a deputy who reported that the phone was “a threat” and that he was “in fear of serious bodily injury or death” — and who thus arrested Conover for “unlawful photography” and alleged that Conover’s iPhone “pointed a laser” at him, though iPhones have no laser, flash, or other illuminating devices.

    the above is the link to the cell phone photo guy who was arrested by the cop for taking his picture.
