Gorden love the Fantasia BTW.

Check with DrAchoo he mentioned that same building, next time take the picture from the street and you should be fine.

I had the same thing happen to me on a trip to Dallas. It was a different building of course. I was also on a public sidewalk.

I wrote a letter explaining my experience and how disappointed I was to be made so unwelcome in the city to the Dallas City Council. I got a reply from the Police Chief citing national security and potential terrorist threat. The whole thing was basically BS.

Don't get too stressed by it all: it is only really an issue when you are trying to sell photographs commercially, and only really when selling them for use in advertisements. Selling prints is unlikely to be sufficiently valuable for people to take much notice, unless you are dealing with a hyper-sensitive company like Disney (hint: don't try selling prints of Mickey Mouse in front of the Epcot centre!). Your liability in any case is in practice likely to be limited to the profit you make.

In respect of photos of buildings, it is generally safe to assume that you can take photographs and exploit them unless you are told otherwise.

If you it stresses you that you are being curtailed in making money from your art, then it might be a good idea to think of it the other way around: the person who designed the subject matter of your photograph only wishes to ensure that he gets paid for commercial exploitation of his "art".

I wanted to make sure we don't overlook the most important question facing us today ... I say it depends on how far it is to the nearest cell phone antenna ...

That's what I thought.

Just in case you didn't hear, in a question asked at the Judge Alito hearings dealing with the First Amendment and freedom of expression, Judge Alito mentioned that in New Jersey (the state I live in) shopping malls have been found to be public spaces even though owned privately they are considered public spaces and can be used for freedom of expression.

Isn't that one of the things I posted earlier? Well what do you know? :) How cool is that, I wonder if they are reading our little postings here? I am sure tomorrow the transcript will be available online and I will quote the question and Judge Alito's answer.

Think he'll answer the "man in the woods" question?

I don't think so since he will not comment on a case which may come before him if he is confirmed as a Supreme Court justice. The case in the works right now is "Mr. Noballs v Mrs. Hasthejewelsinavicegrip."

The truth about photography.

Was it the Bank of America building ... the one downtown with the green neon on the edges and the red statue out front ???

You could just post your personal expierance if you like instead of being sarcastic. Not funny BTW or interesting. :)

Oh and did you want me to translate that into Hunguarian for you so you don't think we are so narrow minded?

Mike

Ön tudna csak felad -a személyes expierance ha ön szeret helyett lét gúnyos. Nem furcsa BTW vagy érdekes.:) Ó és akart én -hoz lefordít amit -ba Hunguarian érted tehát nem hiszed vagyunk tehát sz&#369;k látókör&#369;?

I wouldn't worry about what that guy thinks, most of his comments and posts are sarcastic and/or rude. Take the comment on the 2nd place for "Mother" challenge for instance:

"very sickly and wierd. Kissing your kids on the lips is wierd if you ask me."
--eyeronik

Thank you all for the helpful hints....Kris

I hope people aren't thinking eyeronic represents all Hungarians. Perhaps he really isn't (I am, though).

According to eyeronik's profile, he is 6. That could speak worlds, truth or not...
