For a long time now photography has been one of the biggest art form out there. Everybody photographs. For private use, Instagram, Facebook, or other usage. Now imagine if there were a law forbidding you from photographing outside of your home. Forbidding you to photograph buildings and forbidding you to shares such images. That is the reality in some countries, such as in Italy today.
One politician in the European Parliament wanted to help people in countries such Italy in the EU, however this got some nasty backlash. Instead of making photography in the European Union less restrictive, now a motion to make it even harsher in the entire European Union has been filed.
This will forbid you and I to photograph buildings and structures such as the London Eye in London and The Little Mermaid in Denmark.
Please help out and tell the politicians in your country to do something to stop this, and remember to sign the petition! Links are below.
