Submitted by

u38cg writes "Usman Asif's quote summarises the position for public photographers today. Arts student Sebastian Przygodzki was today fined in a Scottish court for photographing a woman being sick outside a bar, after being charged with breach of the peace. This was despite Member of Parliament Austin Mitchell's Early Day Motion earlier this year, which gathered 240 signatures from across the House. Bruce Schneier blogged earlier this year on the "War on Photography", the tendency among authority to try to restrict public photography. It's been an issue for a long time; here's an article from 2005 which treads the same ground. And lastly, for the benefit of Sebastian and his fellow snappers, here are some handy guides to the law for the United States, the UK, and Australia (in PDF)."
