    That explains how I was not allowed to take photos inside Parkview Square while my ang moh friend could (he's not a tourist.. he's a PR.) LOL

    You are absolutely correct! I also recall not only the police, but the Ministry of Home Affairs saying the same thing in the newspaper report

    i read a news report regarding a young lady complaining of a man taking her picture inside
    a MRT train. she called in the police. the police came and screen thru the man's HP images.
    the police let him go after they found nothing offensive. i remember reading the article with
    remarks by the police saying that it is not a crime for taking pictures in public.

    as long as i'm standing in a public place, they hv no right to stop me to take what i want.

    It's sad how photographers can be linked to terrorists, spies, reporters, PIs and sickos.

    So maybe next time I shall just sketch a scene inside a shopping centre. See who stops me. No photography, didn't say no sketching.

    Best case is shophouse. You can stand on the road and shoot squarely at their shopfront and they don't have the legal right to stop you.

    shall we start to do something to protect our rights?
    to let our integrity, our pride, our unhappiness over the unlawful treatment be heard by the public.

    I'm really sick of seeing people linking photography to terrorism, spying, PIs, employees from govt agencies out to spot any mistakes in what they're doing, reporters, tikopeks and pedophiles.

    shall we set a time n a date, meet at a place where 'no photography' sign is displayed,
    shoot all we like and disperse within 1 min. TNP and major media will be notified.

    I think you shdn't go to a place with the sign, since you will then look like the bad person. Go find some shophouse or the like with a public road in front.

    you got a point there.
    but for me, i thought the sign was invalid at all.
    obviously, it is uncalled for and is a sign of discrimination.

    Photography has no rule, so why make a rule to stop photography?

    Well if you're on their premises, they are the ones who sets the rules.

    Anyway if you want to call the media, you also need to consider the PR and human angle, besides the strict legal and rules angle.

    It's the same in almost any country, the rants in this thread is exactly the same as rants in London, Manila, etc... Heck, the entire CBD in Manila is private property.
