Verder over dat portretrecht: iemand heeft mij een tijdje geleden verteld dat het verboden is om foto’s te maken van spoorwegen en stations (of het waar is, weet ik niet).

And on that subject: in New York proberen ze ondertussen het maken van foto’s in/op de subway te verbieden.

I think that since 9-11 there has been a slow erosion of civil liberties in the city. The threat of terrorism has been used to justify cracking down on some of our fundamental rights: the right to free speech, the right to assemble, and the right to equal protection and due process under the law. It’s a scary time, but people seem to be waking up to the threat and mobilizing to protect constitutional rights. Things like the subway photography ban certainly throw these issues out into the open.

Scary time, indeed.
