Is it illegal to take photos in a mall or store? It is in one country at least and the man who was questioned for taking two pictures of his 4-year-old daughter eating ice cream is making the news. Here is the photo.
I was stopped in a store across from the World Trade Center called Century 21. I was scolded for photographing my daughter in the store. I thought the woman was being a jerk, but I never realized it may be for security. I thought they were protecting their crappy merchandise.
This man started a Facebook page to boycott this shopping center, and he has a point. It is ridiculous that we have become so paranoid that we can't take a picture of our own family.
