Writing About Photography Law
Just finished a top to bottom update of my 2006 article on Personal Photography and Personal Websites. Even though there were shiny new cases and a few longer citations there hasn’t been much new to the civil issues arising from Civil Code § 3344, but I felt it was time to reference the criminal issues arising from sharing naughty pictures after promising not to (Penal Code § 647) after reading a few poorly written summaries in the mainstream media in their New Year’s new law roundup
clickbait articles. And no, naughty pictures is not the term of art, but I’ll leave the quotes of the legislature’s explicit list to the article and the code itself.
Now that the updates are finished, maybe I can get back to actually doing some photography, or even practicing billable law.
