That is creepy and completely unacceptable behaviour. Don't do it again, regardless of what the law in your country says.The police caught me while I was taking photo of Japanese girls without their permission in Malaysia. Is it a crime to take photos without permission?
Okay, so i`ve read the whole article but still found no links or references to actual laws and regulations. I would really appreciate if someone could point me to a Japanese resource listing all the legal aspects about street photography.Photography Do’s and Don’ts
They are quite right to intervene if you are taking photos of people without permission. People need to be protected from such behaviour. How would you feel if you had a sister and people were taking photos of her without her permission?Damn the police, damn them. I hate them!!!
