    personally, i think we should not give in. if everyone fights back and be firmed on our
    ground, we will not be bullied indefinitely. i think most of us are too nice liao.

    if there is no law for it, no one can put a rule onto me.

    It doesn't matter whether the "durian is copyrighted", the fact remains that under the Copyright Act, taking a photo of da building does not infringe on the copyright in the building.

    So that's why foreign-looking or people of foreign ethnicity are not targeted by guards but locals are.

    Exactly!

    Is there a difference between the pictures taken by these two different groups?

    You mean that the tourists have no ill intent but the locals have?

    Come on! Flickr has millions of building images of countries around the world.
    Try searching the tagged images:
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/tags/building/
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/tags/buildings/
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/tags/singapore/

    Why haven't the governments of the world asking Flickr users to remove these images?

    Because even our SG Government is not the one targetting such photographers, but wannabe ISD security guards and building managers.

    I don't take building photographs either, but thought it would be useful for the other photographers who do.

    It boosts their own ego.

    I've ever been told off by a cafe worker to stop taking pics of their shophouse (I'm shooting UP from the street) because it's private property and illegal to take pics. But of cos I know they have no legal right to stop me.

    People making their own rules. Even if the shooter is on private property, I believe he can shoot unless being told or informed not to. It's not like I'm being a voyeur shooting into some toilet or it's some protected place.

Apologies if this has been asked b4

    politely ask for the B&W that says no photography. if none, the waiter has no right to enforce such "rules"

    Yes it would, although the restaurant would have the right to ask you to leave if they wanted to. The tricky bit then comes in if you are already halfway through your meal

    hi

    haha. so would you leave the restaurant if you are halfway thru your meal? and another question pops up. DO you as a paying customer have the right to not to leave?.

    Why is photography a specially touchy issue in Singapore? Sigh
