    As far as I understand it is not enforceable, as you are standing on public property–the sidewalk. Maybe it’s there to scare money out of tourists?

    When I’m out and about shooting I carry a copy of the Photographer’s Right ( around with me… it’s a sweet legal guide, just in case someone tries to mess with you.

    It’s soooo not enforceable in any way, but I think their level of entertainment is usually worth a buck.

    Definitely not enforceable but if you take a photo with them as the primary subject, then I totally agree it’s lame not to pay.

    It makes me really sad that anyone would think, even for a second, that maybe they would actually have to pay.

    Well there’s something about respecting the rights of the subject- if they don’t want to be photographed, I try to respect that. If this person is tired of being objectified by every tom Dick & Harry and shown on slideshows in Omaha, hey, that’s his/her right. Though- this seems to be more a moneymaking scheme.
