that is not a criminal offense and you won't find a law in any law book where taking a picture of someone that doesn't want their picture taken, is against the law.
now, you may have a civil case...but unless you are a celebrity, it is more of a request, than something you can actually take action on.
ummmmm, did you even read my post? that's exactly what i am saying. even a celebrity doesn't have a case unless they can show their image was used to sell products without their permission or they can show extreme harassment.

Maybe it's transference of my recent experience.Nurses don't wear masks and surgical caps in the newborn nursery area. The masks and surgical caps are for sterile procedures, such as attending a c-section delivery for example.

We get our pictures taken all the time, working with infants..I personally don't care..doesn't bother me one way or the other.
Never heard of "photoshop"? Friend of mine (this was a friendly gag mind you) had her picture taken bending over to pic up her kid. Someone took it and worked on it to make it look like she was body slamming him or something.

BabyLady.........he was talking about the taking of the phone itself that is a criminal offense
Forcefully taking someone's cell phone or camera, however, can get one in big trouble criminally. Horseshoe
