    There is a new regulation for any photographer who likes to take images for “more than 5 minutes at location”.
    NPPA protested this rule which you might find it here.

    Interesting, not sure how they can do that with it being on public property. I'm sure the cops have nothing better to do then sit and time photographers for their 5 minutes, and check absolutely every single person with a camera to make sure they have the proper license.

    These aren't "new" regulations : if you read this article and follow the link to the regs, you can see that they've been around since about 1970.

    Although most professional and amateur photographers were not the intended target of these municipal regulations, which were originally crafted to regulate street-vendor type cameramen who take photos of tourists and sell them for a fee, some worry that there is still potential for abuse.

    Yep - Thinks are different in America. In UK the type of street photographer you mention needs to have a street trader's licence rather than meet any photography regulations.

    Love that comment, Tony. As someone who spends a lot of time in America, three myths that always amuse me:

    1. The Land of the Free

    2. The Home of Democracy

    2. The idea that God would even consider blessing America.

    But, hey, they do have a H..U..G..E variety of superb photographic subjects and the people tend to be especially friendly towards those of us from the Celtic fringes of the British Isles.

    I suspect it is aimed at smudgers or people photographing passers-by to sell them the pic? you know, tourists etc.
