Photographer sued Steven Spielberg

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.

Where there are dog shows there are photographers!

Other than these day’s usual phenomenon of everyone taking photos with cameras and mobile phones even photographers considered to be press attended yesterday’s World Dog Show in large numbers. There were almost as much photographers trying to snap the winning dogs as it is usual at the olympics or in Formula 1. We had far less photographers a week before at the kayak-canoe world cup.
