    When the thread title is "Upset at the actions of the photo lab", the photo lab's obligations under the law have everything to do with the discussion. Your opinion about the law doesn't absolve the photo lab of any responsibilities they may have under Australian law.

    AUS also has a well known (and semi-recent) track record for enacting draconian laws around these types of things based on irrational impulses. That is no justification for it and if people have issue with it they should be allowed to air those issues rather than accept it as "oh well that's the law, so it shouldn't be argued."
    It has a lot if you would like to do your research. And prove to me what laws you are referring to are draconian, and why. I'd like to know.

    Okay, so that's the law guys! Nothing to discuss here!
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Yes, but read that law and I think you'll agree that a simple bare bum in a photo does not constitute child abuse.

    In this case, according to the description of the photo which we were given and interpreting the summary of the law which we were shown, I think it's pretty clear that the photo lab AND the police applied that law incorrectly.

    Incorrect, negligent and/or discriminatory application of a law against one person for arbitrary reasons is a redressable offense.

    Yes, this is Australian law but I'll say it again. It doesn't matter if you're in Adelaide or Albuquerque. You can't just make up laws and you can't decide when to apply them. You have to go by what is written.

    According to what I read, the laws in question were interpreted incorrectly, applied incorrectly and, in my opinion, they were applied NEGLIGENTLY.

    As a photo lab owner in Australia and someone who has been a printer in various other labs over 15 years I believe to the core the way this photo lab acted is a disgrace that shows a shocking lack of judgement. If I as a client were subjected to such an event I would be on the phone to legal representation and suing both the individual and the lab for defamation of character. If you flip though many photo albums your guaranteed to find nudie shots parents have innocently made of their children without a single thought of any sexual aspects. They are simply moments of life documentation. Should my parents have been notified to the police when the lab person printed this image of me?

    I feel embarrassed a lab in Australia behaved the way it did.

    I would re-read the initial description, to me it sounds like the kid was bent over and spread, and all of his bits could be seen, which would technically violate something. Either way honestly I think the OP was foolish to think this WOULDN'T happen, but I still think it sucks that it did.

    Thanks Stephen, for summing up my exact feelings.

    If my Jobo E6 processing doesn't work out you may get some new business
