    The Photographers Rights...

    Everyone should be aware of their rights when it comes to capturing images in public places.

    While useful, it is specific to the United States of America and may not apply to members from other nations with different laws.

    Did millions of people suddenly disappear? This may have an answer.

    Here is the UK version: http://www.sirimo.co.uk/2009/05/14/u...ers-rights-v2/

    This was updated a couple of years ago.

    It's very difficult to remember what your photographers rights are when two six foot five coppers have got your arms twisted up your back .

    The Rodney King incident we had over here a few years back did a lot to tone down police aggression. The citizen's of the UK should force the legislature to address the issue before it comes to an incident like ours if it is that big of a problem.

    It isn't really a problem. We have had a few cases of photographers being detained by police but they all end up with the police apologising for their error.

    Not to open a whole can of worms, but didn't "terrorism" tone it right back up again?

    Yes. The problem isn't the isolated incidents of aggression, e.g. King. I'm not worried about getting a wood shampoo from a dozen cops, I'm worried about being harrassed while doing something the law allows me to do.

    Excellent articles Tony & Steve; just what I needed. I knew when the "security" people said I couldn't photograph their building/skyscraper that they were wrong and I was right, but since I didn't have anything to back up my position, I smiled and left. I think I will keep a couple of copies of those articles in my camera bag and use them to enlighten the poor so-in-so the next time, and there will be a next time
