You are allowed to take photos of people (without their permission) in a public place in the UK, including for commercial gain. Some places which you might think are public are in fact not (e.g., a shopping centre). Both you and the other person/people have to be on public land.

Dont think your right mate... Why do they block folks faces out on tv etx.... If someone took my picture or videoed me at work id sue their ass off :oops: :evil:... Ive had folks delete footage before as it was not right and could have got me sacked at work :lol:..

Civil liberties etc... When on hols i always ask if folks mind me taking their picture.. But im digressing from dash cam footage etc..

You are allowed to take photos of anyone or any thing in a public place UNLESS they object.

The main problem I have come across is thick as shit plod and security who don't know this and think they can stop you taking photos of things because it massages their fragile egos to

Code: Select all

pretend
they might be preventing a terrorist plot

P.S. Tramp, what about all the CCTV cameras on public roads and streets?, they don't ask to film you

PP.S. Headline quote from the MET....
Freedom to photograph and film

Members of the public and the media do not need a permit to film or photograph in public places and police have no power to stop them filming or photographing incidents or police personnel.
There are a lot of caveats re anti-terrorism law that follow, but this is the basic premise.

PPPS..Sorry Mike, for the outrageous thread drift :D

Interesting stuff, especially Switzerland.

I've just stuck my gopro to the Tiger (fixes nicely on the aux light protector) as I'm doing a quick trip over the Grand St Bernard Pass next week as part of a wander about France (the pass it a bit of a long way round detour from one place to the next).

Anyway, I will be making a Public Information Film on the Weather and Road Conditions of the pass while I am there and will publish it on this site once i have edited it properly.

Oh, and just to be sure, If you are going to be on the road between Aosta and Morzine on Wednesday, I will be filming. Please take note.

Do they not get away with that by having a barely readable notice somewhere in the vicinity of the camera / on an access road to it?

Not sure about that bit. There is still a large portion of the population very concerned about the surveillance culture, and even more so in light of how the data can now be manipulated. There is evidence that crime in CCTV-monitored areas just moves to less-monitored areas, rather than dropping overall.

If you combine CCTV in public with number plate recognition facilities, the constant footprint you leave when you make financial transactions, the gathering of data via social media and shopping sites, and a load of other means - you have a society that has never examined itself as closely as today. Which obviously makes it all the more important that we know who is doing the monitoring, why, for whom and to what end?
