ACLU publishes guide to photographers' rights
There is a widespread, continuing pattern of law enforcement officers and private security guards ordering people to stop taking photographs from and in public places, and harassing, detaining and even arresting those who fail to comply.
To defend free speech and right to take still photographs and video, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), has now published a comprehensive guide to what you are allowed to do as a photographer, or when you are recording video and/or audio the USA.
The guide is a response to a series of cases of where photographers and videographers have being harassed, challenged, and even charged for their activities. The guide also gives advise on how to respond if you are challenged by the police.
