Photography rights advocate Carlos Miller came across the above poster recently put out by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). Apparently the administration doesn’t know that there’s a huge number of non-terrorist photographers who enjoy doing something called aviation photography.
NewsARSE has a pretty funny satirical piece poking fun at the photographers’ rights situation in the UK:
Police forces have been taking an extremely tough stance against any members of the public wishing to take photographs of public buildings and public places, leaving many would-be terrorists unhappy at the implication they are also photographers.
As one member of a Coventry-based Al Qaeda cell explained to us, “I resent being treated like I’m some sort of photographer. The officer who stopped me had absolutely no evidence that mere photography was my intention, so what right did he have to detain me and delete my photographs.”
Terrorists ’sick of being treated like photographers’
