    It's a satirical statement that symbolizes or paraphrases all the legal cases in the US, British and Canadian Supreme Court on personal injury lawsuits that cover photography where defendants were slapped with hundreds of thousands of dollars as compensatory, exemplary, punitive damages...etc.

    I am still missing something, since no one has been successfully sued for taking pictures in Canada, the US, or Britain. It is the right of any photographer under the respective laws of these countries.

    Go to a law library. Get a Case Law Finder. Look into photography. You'll read cases on photography where defendants are fined. Or look under Photo release form requirements.or privacy cases. Either US Supreme Court, British or Canadian.

    Simply NOT true. All constitutions and charters contain the right to self-expression and the enjoyment of property which covers photography. Read "Photography and the Law" in this forum's articles. Aside from perhaps in a court room, top secret locations, washrooms, change rooms, etc., there are NO laws against taking pictures anywhere.

    We both presume that we refer to people whose permission are wanting or are private persons who want privacy. Don't we? As I said, read the legal cases. They are all cited in Case Law Citations. Read them. There are hundreds of them where plaintiffs were awarded compensatory, exemplary damages, etc. There are limits to the right to self-expression like libel, privacy, etc.
    I would like to quote my photography professor in Seneca College, "You put my picture in the web, I'll sue you!!".

    Now you are talking about use of a photo, NOT taking the photo which is somewhat different.

    Nevertheless in a public place in the US and Britain, a photo release is not needed for artistic or editorial use of photo of a person. In Canada, as a result of a recent decision, it may depend on how prominent a part of the photo is taken up by one individual.

    As to your professor, he would not win any suit, if I took the photo and put it on the web. ;)
