    IF you have a comparable document for the Brits, do you have one for Aussies? Thanks!

    A sad state of affairs...

    I've never had, nor heard of a problem up here.

    Many thanks for the links, Laz.

    I've just read through the UK version and, whilst it contains a lot of useful information, I think it would be better titled, "Restrictions on Photographers in the UK". Very well worth reading, but probably not suitable for showing to over-zealous security staff or irate members of the public.

    It's probably also worth pointing out that this year (since the article was written) there has been a general upsurge in paranoia related to photography for the purposes of pedophilia. Amateur Photographer has run several stories on this.

    A UK Photographers' equivalent of the ACLU Bust Card (also dealing with landowners, security guards and paranoid parents) would be most welcome, if anyone with sufficient legal acumen could put one together.

    This seems close, although it doesn't cover quite everything.

    Here is something else on UK rights explaining what you can and cannot do, but not actually stating the law.

    Preface and caveats at first two links

    And here is the action with it formatted to print on a small card for the camera bag

    You can "Save As Text" to a ".txt" file. From there, you can change fonts, font size, etc., or you can import it into MS Word and also highlight whichever sections you'd like.

    "Deluded" best describes anyone who believes that pulling out a document setting out their rights and showing it to a police authority who wants them to stop what they are doing will do any good. If you don't comply with what they say you get arrested. Later the charges are dropped. Even before 9/11 and the DHS this was the case. To try to avoid arrest once I told the cop that I had AP credentials in my pocket. He said, "I don't give a shit what you have, motherf***r." I spent the better part of the night in jail and when my film was returned it had all been pulled out of its cassettes.

    Well, joys of life in free, democratic societies... This only proves how those societies are more free than for example comunists countries...

    I'm assuming this was here in the US. Did you file suit for voilation of your 1st Amendment right of free speach (or if you did have AP creds, freedom of the press) or your 4th Amendment right to be safe from unreasonable search and seizure? If not, why? You're right that you can't stop the cop if he wants to arrest you, but you can stop them from doing it to the next guy.
