    Haha I have Shin Min too. Just read the article and photocopied it out.

    The handsome guy in the picture is a lawyer.
    He says that photography in public area is allowed. Shop owners are not allowed to charge money to photographers for taking photo of their shop.

    This is one good proof, photocopy and keep it.
    Bring it with me everywhere.

    I have maintained that position since god knows how many years ago

    By the way, lawyers can also be wrong, hence I won't rely on a legal opinion as "proof" of anything .

    many hobbist photographers were complaining on a local forum for facing restriction with
    photography in public places. in chinatown, signages of No Photograph can be seen in many
    spots.

    one of the hobbist photographer Yeo Boon Teck wrote to our papers to express his
    unhappiness.

    mr. yeo says, he was stopped by the shop owner for photograph when he was there in
    chinatown for the CNY goodies early this year. later, he discovered even more of the
    signages within the chinatown area. mr. yeo feels that it is very unpleasant to have those
    signages in places like chinatown which is a tourism area. to see if the signages were really
    mean to take effect, mr yeo went back to chinatown few days later and he was again
    stopped for taking picture by the shop owner. some of the shops were even posted for a
    fee of $5 for any photo taken outside their shop. mr. yeo has since wrote to the STB.

    base on the explaination from the shop owners of the signages, the move is to deter ppl
    from copying their products.

    one of the souvenir shop owner says, some visitors removed the product without permission
    to take pic. some put the ancient hat on their sweaty head for photography and it left with
    unsightly marks on the unsold product. thus they have no choice but to impose the rule.
    if the visitor insists to take pic with the product, a $2 fees will be imposed.

    according to mr yeo, beside chinatown, places like esplanade, national library, churches,
    shopping centre and 5 stars hotels are also restricting photography.

    when our reporter checked thru the forum, we found some ppl complaining of security guards
    disallowed the local to take photo within the premises but not doing the same to the foreigners.

    the management of the esplanade and NLB, both say that photography is allowed but plz
    try to be discreet. becos some ppl may not like to be captured into the pic.

    as for esplanade, photographers are welcome to shoot inside n outside of the centre. but
    becos it is a prominent place, it can be targeted by the terrorist. as such, the security
    personnel would usually keep an eye on those ppl behaving suspiciously.

    the handsome lawyer says:

    everybody has the right of photography in public places. and owners are not allowed to
    impose any fee even if their shop is shot in a frame. in the event if the negative or camera
    is taken away for no reason, it is a case of robbery. if is pushed, it is a case of assault.

    plz safe keep the article for reference.

    The thing is, who determines what constitutes 'suspicious' behaviour, and by what criteria, if any? Aren't just about any building in the CDB and Shenton Way area also 'prominent'? Some of them stick out way higher than the Esplanade, are more heavily populated within a much higher density/sq km area than the Esplanade could ever be, and with much highr and more predictable frequency.

    quite nonsense. i dun see any of the above reasons really associated with photography. customers touched the products and try on the hat, without photography, do they stop them?

    besides, the above behaviours does not seem to be local practices and probably done by tourists. are they going to stop the tourists from doing that?

    yes them mofos need to spell it out. i think this article deserves to be followed up in detail. they need to interview the management of esplanade. hell they should interview the people managing city hall and national stadium about the bs charges and double standards city hall imposes.

    Mr Yeo Boon Teck. I would like to congratulate you on your achievement. There were a few pessimistic voices, lots of loud whining and some even louder chest beating. But only you took the action to right the wrongs. A catfight between holy virgins and lesbian lovers is more exciting to read. But you actually made Singapore a better place.

    i wouldn't be so quick to consider this a victory until all these places permanently stop their bs instead of just laying low for now.

    thx for all the compliments. it is always sweet to hear that. keke

    well, some of the explanation are obviously BS one lah. they were juz trying to cover
    their ugly side for putting up those ugly signages.

    SM is not the best channel to express our unhappiness but at least our little voices are
    heard for now, we can and must stick our head up in pursuing our interest.

    btw, hope you all can understand my half past six england translation.
