A legal controversy arose in 2013 when a well-known photographer took pictures from the shadows of his Tribeca loft of people living across the street in a modern, glass-walled condominium. Creepy? Some occupants visible in the photographs filed suit for invasion of privacy. So far, the photographer has prevailed. Surprised? Come learn more about the history of surreptitious photography in the United States and about the privacy issues raised by the Tribeca loft dispute from Professor Richard Chused, a scholar on copyright law, cyberlaw, property law, and gender and American legal history. His article, Appropriate(d) Moments, which discusses this conflict between privacy and artistic expression exacerbated by digital photography, will be published in the Fordham Intellectual Property, Media & Entertainment Law Journal this fall.
