Update on Proposed NYC Photography Rules

The New York Times reported yesterday on the campaign against the recently proposed City rules (mentioned earlier here and here) that would require anyone wanting to photograph or film in public places to get a permit and a million dollars of insurance. The campaign is being led by a "newly formed advocacy group" called Picture New York; their website is here.

The public comment period ends next Friday. The New York Civil Liberties Union says "the rules they are proposing are unconstitutional" and "we will sue if they adopt them."
