An interesting legal debate started when Steven Spielberg (employees) didn’t allow a photographer to take paparazzi photos of a movie shooting on the streets of New York. Security guards did everything they could to prevent photographing the movie shooting. They installed blockades, canvases, privacy screens and held umbrellas in front of the photographer to block his view. Photographer in return sued the movie company for infringing First amendment rights as New York streets are private property and it is part of freedom of speech to take photos of things happening on the streets.

At Sziget Festival you should also watch out for your valuables. In the big crowd it is just as easy to loose something accidentally as it is possible to run into thieves and get things stolen.

A few days ago I posted on the Facebook page of my Hungarian blog the picture pair from last elections. I didn’t yet get this similar one from this year.
