Has fear of photography gone too far? Officially, yes.

Last week a primary school in Devon in England prohibited parents from taking photos or videos at school events. The school cited concerns in child protection and image legislation, namely the Data Protection Act.

Thankfully, the country’s privacy watchdog has stepped in and told schools they are wrong to interpret the law this way. He suggested taking a “common sense approach,” which, come to think of it, would be nice way to approach life in general.
