US Government’s ‘war on cameras’

I discovered this video regarding the laws surrounding photography in public places by Reason.tv via PetaPixel.  If anyone reading this has a serious interest in photography and isn’t already following PetaPixel, I highly recommend it.  They’re a very active blog, and their posts are universally pretty interesting.

The video is completely US-centric, but it’s still an interesting video to watch, exploring the realities of the laws in America regarding photography in public places, and how myths arise that are taken as law but aren’t actually grounded in anything.  Well worth eight and a half minutes of your time if you’re into this sort of thing.
