The Law for Photographers - Do I Need Permission?
#1
Interesting article on whether or not you require permission for photographing certain objects, or in certain places.
http://www.photosecrets.com/tips.law.html

Very interesting to note:

Quote:Works of art - sculptures, paintings, and even toys - are protectable by copyright. Furthermore, buildings created on or after December 1, 1990 are protected by copyright. A copyright owner has the exclusive right to reproduce a copyrighted work, and photographing a copyrighted work is considered a way of reproducing it. Thus, you may need permission to photograph a building or an art work.
The article is worth a read - sounds pretty bleak for photographers though...
