    China does not care, because it is a honey badger

    You can’t go to jail if you take a photo on your vacation. Such an idiot. If you take the picture and then use the picture to make money, then you could go to jail. Stop making a big deal out of a family vacation photo.

    If I’m allowed to take photos of artistic works for personal use. Am I allowed to take a photo of the Eiffel Tower at night for my own use? If I’m never intending to use a nighttime photo of the Eiffel Tower for commercial use, how will I be breaking the copyright law? You’re leaving a lot of loopholes open and not throughly explaining

    “It’s very hard to find a picture of the Eiffel Tower at Night. *Googles it* Instantly getting hundreds of pictures of it at night.

    Don’t those copywrite laws refer to sales of photography or video of those things? I could take a picture with my camera for myself, and France can take a running jump.

    The idea that a photo of a landmark building can be restricted is completely absurd.

  15. JonatasAdoM says:

    There will be a time where you will need to pay a tax just to open your camera (while surveillance cams record all of your steps)

    I would like to see this tested in international courts. The notion that you can’t photograph a public-domain building because there are new lights on it seems shaky to me, even though the pattern of those lights is subject to copyright. You obviously can’t extend any copyright forever by saying “well yeah but that little spot of paint we added last year is a new copyright.” The issue is whether you’re really photographing the lights, or if you’re photographing the Eiffel Tower and the lights are secondary. The lights are a lot more substantial than a little spot of paint, but this seems to fall more into legal twilight than night or day.
