Photographing Children without Parental Consent

Quote:
Such legislation, which is being considered by the Assembly Judiciary Committee, would step into a constitutional minefield.

The bill would ban photographs or recordings of children when "a reasonable parent or guardian would not expect his child to be the subject of such reproduction."

"If you take a picture of your child at the Jersey Shore building a sand castle, and there were other children in the background, would that violate the law?" he asked.

Lauren James-Weir, an attorney for the New Jersey Press Association, said such a measure would make it nearly impossible for news outlets to publish photographs or film.
NJ Lawmakers really need a vacation. Unbelievable.

Pheh...if you read the bill it says "child to be the subject of such reproduction"


The key word here is "subject".
Kids in the background of a photo where something else is the focus...is not the subject, therefore not unlawful.
I worked 13 years in the newspaper business, editors have loooong required parental consent for photos of a child or children if they are the focus of the picture.

Sounds totally unworkable.

If you are in the public domain you do not have the right to expect privacy.

However, there is a difference between just being in a picture, because you were there, and being in a picture because the photographer wanted you (or knew you would be) there, if you get me drift.

Where one draws the line between just accidently being in a picture and stalking or privacy invasion isn't easy to define.

Such distinctions must be decided in the context of the event.

Even for high school sports? Community activities? My children have been in the paper numerous times. I've never signed a consent.

Who is to say what the subject is? If you are taking a picture of the ocean and there are children swimming, who is to say what the subject is? How are people to know what the age is of people in the ocean?

If they are worried about voyeurism, there is already a law on the books. If they are worried about harrassment or intimidation, etc . there is already a law.

Ridiculous.

I think you would have to know what is behind this law, what created the desire to make the law.
For example, news media could be exempted...that would be an easy addendum.
Is it illegal right now to post a youtube video of kids doing something stupid? Should it be?
Would you, as a parent, want to see your 13yo in a video doing something incredibly embarrassing to you?
I would want to see the actual bill, and what the intended spirit of the law is.

There was a creepy guy videotaping a young girls' swim meet. A mother got freaked and asked that he be arrested. Cops said there was no law. So just like every other nanny state idea, idiots say "no pictures ever It's for the children!!!" And while I'd hate to see some inappropriate video of my kid doing something stupid, I would not their friends jailed for it. Imagine opening that can of worms.

No kidding. What’s the justification for preemption?

What constitutes ‘news media’? How do the cops know creepy guy at the swim meet isn’t press? What’s the probable cause for asking for his credentials? Now we’re talking police state.

You’d think someone involved in drafting this law would get with a legal advisor first to explore civil rights issues before proceeding.

Odd. In my state, which is pretty solidly rightwingloon land, I've had to sign or decline numerous forms giving or not giving my permission for my kids to be photographed.

I don't really get your objection, chanel.

This is the whole story.

Some N.J. lawmakers target people who photograph children without parental consent | NJ.com

My objection ravi, is that it would be expensive, unnecessary, and impractical. It is essentially a thought crime. We don't arrest people because there is a .000000000000001 percent chance that a creepy guy might pleasure himself to a picture of a child at a swim meet. Sheez.

If they want to ban sex offenders from photographing children, I'm all for it. But the ACLU would freak over that one.

If they want to arrest ordinary people who like to photograph, frankly they can go to hell.

here is the damned problem: yankees are a bunch of pussies in general.....that man filming 8 to 10 yr old girls and saying he likes them that age....or likes to watch them at that age is simply saying....i like to film your daughters and then jack off to her when i get home...yeehaw....key banjo music cause this person would have gotten the mal kicked out of him by the fathers ....some times community actions beats the hell out of expecting the police to do anything....unless you want some old lady or youngster tasered

Throughout the year and for each and every school outing, I have to sign releases which either give or decline permission for my kids to be photographed.

A Plague of Perverts with Cameras . . . . .

Appearantly, there is a growing plague of strangers going about photographing and videoing children they are not related to. Why else would such a law be needed or even suggested? The question is: Is this really happening ? Is this about the publishing of material, or just the making of it ?

This could lead to more and more preemptive laws:

Islam has laws that prohibit women from showing too much of their bodies in public. Maybe there should be a law in the West against parents allowing their children to show too much of themselves in public.
