my friend steve sent me a link to this piece today, on copyrighted public space. It raises some interesting questions about public spaces and how the "public" are allowed to utilize them. I have to say, though, the idea of having to purchase a permit in order to take photographs of a public space that may be for commercial use (hello tourism board!), or may not, seems downright odd, and contradictory to the idea of public art installations in the first place.
