You've gotta fight...for your right...to...photograph?
Spied over at Jason's..."The Photographer's Right - A Downloadable Flier".

Considering Starbucks doesn't even want you to take photos inside now, might not be such a bad thing to keep handy.

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

Ok, what in the hell? Maybe I can understand if they're concerned about people lifting their marketing ideas or something, but damn. It's Starbucks. It's everywhere. If someone is going to steal, it's not really a problem.

Now I just want to go in and take covert photos now.

I got the evil stare from some cops while taking pictures outside the New York Stock Exchange earlier this week. In that they were armed to the tee, I quickly moved along. Then again, maybe I was just paranoid, by all the cops around the city. So much for being a tourist. Such a shame that you can't take architectural shots, without looking suspicious.

Interesting. I was going to write a comment, then stopped myself because I realized my words would be snatched up by the machine, digested, analyzed, and could accidentally get me in trouble. Chilling Effects this Patriot, Patriot II etc. has. And I'm from Canada and I'm still censoring myself.

It's not farfetched either, because there have been wide reports of people having their door knocked on by MIBs of various types when they said something in their blog or on other sites (e.g. Kuro5hin)

But I digress. Other than the censored comment ;) I was going to say, "but what about Canada?" Would be nice if someone has figured out what rights we have for photography here in Canada.

I know that recording rights are single-party, like some of your states. (Only a single party to the conversation being recorded must consent, versus both parties needing to consent in some U.S. states). This is my understanding of it, anyway.

I actually took pictures in Starbucks and the come up to me and wanted the film from the camera, since it was digital I showed them and deleted them. They told me if I didn't give them the film or get rid of them they would press charges.
