Photographing in NYC?

New regulations restricting the right to photograph in public places have been proposed in NYC. The new rules would require a permit and a hefty amount of insurance. You can read The New York Times report here. The regulations have generated what I think is a deserved reaction from those who consider them a violation of constitutional rights to free press, free assembly, etc.; opponents of the regulations have organized a protest rally at Union Sq. tonight at 6:30 and are circulating a petition electronically. You can find information on the proposed regulations, why you should oppose them, the rally, and the petition here.
PS: (Added 28 July) Here is an update from The New York Times.
