I guess I'll have to break it to my friend Cedar that her photos of a giant reflecting bean evidently make her a copyright scofflaw.
Update: David Bollier on same: No Joke: Copyright Fees Required for Taking Photos in Chicago Parks: "I can only imagine what's coming next -- making micro-payments via wireless devices for glimpses of public landmarks?"
Update #2: Marty Schwimmer has a copyright koan: "Question: Assuming that it is unauthorized, does the second image of a reflected scene in the bean infringe the copyright of the sculpture? Note - I'm not talking about breach of license, as in the photographer apparently needed permission from the property owner (in this case, I think, the City of Chicago) to take a picture from where he/she was standing. My question is: what is the scope of the copyright in the sculpture and does the photo on the right infringe that copyright?"
