This paper explores legal restrictions on photography in public spaces, and contrasts U.S. limits with the approaches taken in other jurisdictions, such as the United Kingdom, Brazil, and the European Union. Because public photography has become such a ubiquitous aspect of our participant digital society and much of the output arguably meet the fair use or de minimis use tests, Congress ought to provide clear statutory guidance allowing (at least) these non-commercial fair uses of copyrighted material visible and permanently situated in public places.
