A proposed new European law would effectively remove the right to take and share photos in public places, across the UK and Europe…

“On the “freedom of panorama” principle, such as the right to create and share images and photographs of public buildings, the text cautions that the commercial use of such reproductions should require authorization from the rightholder.”

It’s a result of pressure from a French MEP, predictably (they’re bizarrely sensitive about commercial photographs of the Eiffel Tower), backed by a UK Labour MEP.
