Depends on what state you live in, you might be able to file charges for invasion of privacy. Many states now make it illegal(even for journalists) to
record people against their wishes. That is why their is legal president that the "paparazzi" , can harras celebrities, because celebrities by
nature of their profession put themselves into the public domain and void certain privacy rights.
Unless there is a legitimate reason for a person to become of social interest, they very much have the right to not be photgraphed or recorded agains
their wishes. That is also why there are many court precedent about journalists and citizens, being able to film on duty police officers.
Those who will say any person who dares have a right to privacy is a fascist, is a fascist themselves, as people clearly have a right to privacy. Not
just privacy from government, but privacy from other people too.
Some people like to advocate for an open society so they can take voyeuristic pictures. You just have to see it for what it is. When a person say's
we should have an "open society", what they mean is they want society to be open to them. They want to be able to go where-ever they want to, take
whatever they want to, date have sex with anyone they want to, and in the end they don't care if people want to. If people don't want to allow them
in they will break in; if they aren't given what they demand they will try and steal it; and if they are told no, they will try to use physical force
or the cohesive arm of the government to achieve their goals.
An open society is an enslaved society.
