Know your rights as a photographer

Hassled

I explained to a friend once that having a "professional looking" camera and a tripod on the street (especially post-9/11) was a recipe for being stopped and hassled by security (primarily private security). His response, "Oh, so it's just like skating." For all those of you who have been or will be hassled, know your rights. The ACLU's page lays it all out.
