Techie lawyer Wendy Seltzer snaps a picture of the manual of her new Canon digital camera which gives a warning that her camera is "intended for personal use and should never be used in a manner that infringes upon or contravenes international or domestic copyright laws or regulations."
And it goes on to say that even for personal use in certain cases you can't photograph commercial property. I know there's a ban on taking photos in Starbucks. Obviously, the problem is enforcement. But, with the increasing acceptance of phonecams, which are sometimes banned from some facilities, hospitals and clinic must seek to enforce such a ban. They wouldn't even need to cite copyright issues, instead use the concept of privileged information (PI) and patients' rights to privacy according to HIPAA.
