    WHAT???? How can upskirt photo taking NOT be an invasion of privacy?????

    I picked other.Taking photographs of women from underneath their skirts should require the woman's permission.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    It seems like a very solidly-grey area to me.

    The basic rule, with which I fully agree, is that anything that is visible in public, you can photograph; the only exception being where it violates a reasonable expectation of privacy. A clear example of that exception would be in such a place as a locker room, restroom, dressing room, or such, where people reasonably expect to be able to undress, and not be photographed. I'd also consider it to fall under this exception to make an extraordinary effort to position a camera where it can get a view up a woman's skirt, in order to take a picture of a view that isn't easily observed in a direct manner. I'm completely fine with laws that make it a crime to intentionally position a camera in such a manner.

    I would not consider it to fall under this exception is the woman is being careless about how she moves, how her skirt moves, how she sits, stands, or whatever, so that she provides a view that is easily seen by the public. Anything that she either intentionally or willfully shows in public, she has no right or reasonable expectation that it will not be photographed. For example, this photograph that someone else posted a bit back in this thread:



    I recognize that there's a huge grey area between these extremes—of someone having to go to a specific effort to position a camera to look up a woman's skirt, and someone taking a picture of a woman who has carelessly or intentionally allowed her skirt to expose things that a woman normally ought not expose in public.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    When compared to the limitless availability of whatever on the Internet, it seems like a childish, boring thing to do. Talking a big chance for no reason.

    never said that. Wish you would read what I wrote. I said the law AS WRITTEN didn't cover this circumstance (according to the articles). If the judge had ruled that the law did cover this, that would have been the judge making law. I'm not necessarily against that, but that's not really what we want judges doing.

    I don't see how a person would know if the person is wearing panties or not though. It could go either way there.

    I'd figure Ana Ivanovic and Sarah Hughes are far better to look at than the average woman on a street

    But they can't get close to those women. Honestly, these guys are probably hoping to get pictures of women without panties or ill-fitting panties where they aren't covering everything so well. Do they care about what the woman looks like as long as she isn't hideous? They just getting crotch shots after all.
