DEFINITION:

 

LEGALITY:

  • "Due to the reputation of paparazzi as a nuisance, some states and countries restrict their activities by passing laws and curfews,[citation needed] and by staging events in which paparazzi are specifically not allowed to take photographs.[8][9][10][11] In the United States, celebrity "news" organizations are protected by the First Amendment.[12]

    To protect the children of celebrities, California passed a new bill in September 2013. The purpose of the new bill is to stop paparazzi from harassing children by taking pictures of them, regardless of who their parents are. This new law increased the penalty on harassment and the penalty for harassment of children.[13 "
    (Wikipedia)

  • Anti-paparazzi campaign[edit]
    "Garner has campaigned for laws to protect her children from paparazzi. "There's an idea that because our pictures are everywhere that we are complicit in it. When really what happens is they're waiting outside our door every single day. My kids take karate for example, and we have our classes at the same time every week. So the guys know when we have karate, and so 20 of them wait there for us every single class. So that's a lot of energy coming at little, little kids."[81] In August 2013, Garner testified alongside Halle Berry before the Assembly Judiciary Committee in support of a bill that would protect celebrities' children from harassment by photographers.[82]The bill passed in September 2013.[83]"

    "Kensington Palace has today sent the attached letter to leaders of media industry bodies and standards organisations
    in the UK and in other international markets...
    I am writing to provide an overview of the current challenges facing Kensington Palace as we seek to protect Prince George and Princess Charlotte from harassment and surveillance by paparazzi photographers...
    Paparazzi photographers are going to increasingly extreme lengths to observe and monitor Prince George's movements and covertly capture images of him to sell to the handful of international media titles still willing to pay for them. 
    One recent incident – just last week – was disturbing, but not at all uncommon..."
