Post Freedom of panorama in Europe under threat
In case people haven't seen it elsewhere: there will be a vote on the European Parliament on proposed changes in legislature on freedom of panorama across the EU. If this gets passed, it is very likely that FoP will be severely restricted (at least for commercial use) once this turns into legislature. Which means that it will be a lot more difficult to sell/commercially use those beautiful sunrises over the skyline of London, Paris, or Berlin.

What exactly does this mean? Will every tourist eventually risk being arrested for taking photographs in the street? And will there be a govt dept with the equivalent powers of the NSA which trawls the internet for infringements? Not to mention figuring out exactly what constitutes a copyrighted monument. Are Mountains and rivers to be included? What about a sculpture in my front yard? Sounds like a big stupid headache for everyone...
