Apple’s patent pending infrared camera data encoding system may have serious consequences for photographers

Apple has been much maligned in the press recently for filing a patent application covering a camera system with infrared technology that could, among other things, allow the recording functionality to be shut off by a third party.

A Manchester (United Kingdom) photographer was arrested after taking pictures of a brawl on a public street outside a courthouse. He was arrested after asserting his right to take pictures when challenged by the police. The charge was breach of the peace.

The photographer was later released after intervention from a senior police officer.

This is not the first time something like this has happened in the U.K. Although the U.K. is one of the most photographed countries in the world by government installed cameras, there have been numerous stories about the police arresting photographers for taking pictures on a public street and sometimes even while standing on their own private property.
