Aberdeenshire councillors went ahead yesterday and banned parents from taking photographs of children during school activities unless all of them gave their consent - despite experts saying the move would be a vast over-reaction.

And the authority's director of education even suggested children could wear disguises if their parents had concerns

Isn't this just a LITTLE bit of an overreaction? Give me a break!!

I don't know much about British law, but i'd onder how legal such a ban would be.

Furthermore, it wouldn't be very enforcable. What would happen if the School wanted to take some pictures for thier own use? That would be a pretty boring yearbook.

I think it's perfectly reasonable, being photographed without your consent is an invasion of privacy. Perhaps al of the selfish mush-heads out there need to stop and consider that others have rights besides them and theirs. One of those rights being to not have to sit in a photo album forever squeezed between a photo of sleazy uncle Bob and a pic of gramma McGees saggy titties?

That is a pisspoor post clown. Really not a strong argument. So you think when parents take pictures of thier kids at shool, and other kids are in them thats a invasion of privacy? How? what, do the parents exploit the pics or what? back up your argument, if you think you have one.

All unsolicited photography is an invasion of privacy. I admit that the ruling is possibly a little harsh, however i can see where they are coming from. It's pure knee jerk reaction to the over-hyped threat of evil kiddie pornographers, and the assumption that any photo being taken is going to be used for some nefarious purposem, which 99.99999% of the time is not the case. and while there may only be a 0.00001% chance of ending up on some pedo-#'s happy snaps, the chance remains. My original argument was possibly a touch on the reactionary side, however I do think that if the photographs aren't going anywhere other than in somebody's photo drawer with all the other soccer-match reject shots then that's totally ok to take the photo, but taking unsolicited photographs and then adding them to any kind of published work (such as a previously mentioned yearbook) all photographic imagery should be used only with the consent of any identifiable subjects.

Well Clown, here's my reaction. I have never seen "School Play" on the shelf when I was looking for the latest issue of Playboy. If someone tried to stop me from saving a moment from my child's life trouble would ensue.

So Clown, what you're saying is that everytime a picture of somthing(Times Square, in New York for example) I should run up to everyone in the picture and make sure it was ok with them that I took the pic? Comon, thats stupid. I don't even have kids, but if I did, i'd be pretty pissed off if i couldn't take pictures of them at school. And if they are so worried about pedophiles or somthing, why don't they address that problem, instead of punishing parents. I mean how many parents do you know that have little kids AND are pedophiles? But I do understand that the UK is having somthing of a problem with pedophiles here lately. This is probably a reaction to that. NOTE; i am NOT taking a swing at the UK, just stating what I read.

Good Post CanadaCANfighter. Well said, I like it when people post with some intelligence.

Hey Medic, if you did have kids, how pi$$ed would you be if you were told that you couldn't experience their graduation,whatever, because you couldn't be there?

Why are you coming after me? I said that it was a stupid law. Or are you talking about somthing else? I'm confused.

Not coming after you, man, I'm supporting you. You are in Iraq, you couldn't make it to a school function, I mean how would you feel if you couldn't even see your kids, if you had them.

Oh I see what your saying man, sorry. I'd definatly be alittle upset about it. At the same I guess I asked for it by signing up when all this Iraq stuff started to heatup good. Stupid youth ignorance. haha. But, on subject, yeah i'd be upset about it.

Here's something to think about. What if churches were next. "Sorry, you can't have your wedding photographed because Uncle Bob want to be an asshole."

Very true. This could be the start to alot of controversial laws. We'll have to watch and see I guess.

Last time I checked, naked pictures of kids are not that hard to get thanks to the internet and pedo-groups.

Let's not forget how enticing it is to see a little kid in a school play. I bet they get their freak on to that before a naked picture.

Think people. You are photographed every day when you don't ask for it.
