New York CIty's Mayor's Office of Film, Theater and Broadcasting will unveil revised rules for filming and photographing on the streets of New York City, The New York Times reported on Sunday. "The rules, to be released on Tuesday for public comment, would generally allow people using hand-held equipment, including tripods, to shoot for any length of time on sidewalks and in parks as long as they leave sufficient room for pedestrians," the Times reported. "The proposal, drafted as part of a settlement in a lawsuit, was revised after a passionate outcry over the summer from fine-art photographers, independent filmmakers and civil libertarians concerned that the original rules would have restricted unobtrusive video recording." indieWIRE reported on the issue back in July.
