The purpose of this book is to introduce photographers to the basic legal principles that govern the making and publishing of photographs as well as some of the practical aspects of dealing with the issues raised by such laws. Although we live in a society with a seemingly insatiable appetite for images, it cannot be denied that concerns about security and privacy have increased the level of anxiety that some people have regarding photography. Photographers have been challenged for photographing the most mundane subject matter, often for the most illogical reasons. Many of the people initiating confrontations have either a gross misunderstanding of the law as it affects photography or act out of a self-centered sense of indignation. Photographers who do not understand the basic rights about what, where, and when they can photograph tend to approach legal issues with blissful ignorance, excessive caution, or reckless abandon. Insight into the law can make you a more effective photographer because it enables you to exercise judgment in a way that allows you to achieve your objectives—even in difficult situations. For example, would you know your rights if a police officer asked you to hand over your memory card after photographing a violent arrest? Likewise, how would you respond if an a local Little League coach told you that you could not photograph a game being played in a city-owned park because of laws against child molestation? And what are your remedies if your rights to take photographs are violated? Photographers can better handle confrontations when they feel secure about their rights and know about their potential remedies should those rights be violated. Photographers who know the law are also better able to find options that minimize their legal risks. The third edition of this book reflects some of the changes in the copyright and national security laws as they affect photography. It also adds material to cover developing areas that affect photographers. For example, digital imaging and the widespread adoption of video and audio capabilities in even lower-end cameras has resulted in another area of the law becoming increasingly important to photographers: the recording of conversations and videotaping of public and private activities.
