Okay, so I only had time to read like 40 pages of this, and it is a reference work, but it is clearly the best photography rights handbook or document I have ever seen. Most other civil rights guides on the subject just are referencing this. So I'm glad I had the third edition (2012 release) and I'm glad I took the time to at least read the first few chapters. I really hope I can get the opportunity to come back to it later, since I was about to slip into private property rights.

Fuck you Goodreads, I hate your interface. I did not read this four times, I am not currently reading this, I just wrote a review for this book that apparently was scrubbed. It's a good book. Now stop giving me trouble you weird, weird website.
I had a very specific question in mind: if I took a photo in a public space, and the building owners told me I could not use the photo without paying, can I use it? What if I was standing on their lawn, probably slightly off the public space? This book convinced me that whether it was legal or not, it was not worth the hassle.
