Chapter 1,314 - How internet can be a pain in the a** at times

I'm not sure if I did anything wrong, but I can't find a site that lists what laws applies to photography around the world.

What I'm looking for is what's allowed to photograph.

In some countries, you're essentially allowed to photograph anything you see, while other countries have strict laws that doesn't allow photographing people or buildings etc, without a permission.

That would be a very handy list if you plan to go on a trip, visiting other countries, if one want to make sure to stay on the right side of the law.

All I can find are copyright issues and publishing photos online. Not a single thing about what's allowed to photograph in the first place.

The closest I got, was that it seem to be allowed to do up-skirt or down-blouse photographs in USA, since it's up to the individual to protect themselves in a public space, compared to places where privacy is expected (home, dressing rooms, toilets etc).

Hmm.. I got no clue to where to look for a list like that :(
