I didn't know such laws even existed in the first place.

In any case, with each passing year, the possibility of anyone attempting to limit photography is as futile as attempting to gain control over the internet. More than half of the entire world's population owns a cellphone with developed countries reaching 90%, almost all of which are equipped with a camera, and nearly a quarter of those are smartphones. Literally any person you see on the street can whip out their phone and take a picture at any moment, and there's nothing anyone can do about it.

I acquired an expensive camera so I can hang out in forums, annoy wedding photographers during formals and look down on P&S users... all the while telling people it's the photographer, not the camera.

"a completely unenforceable symbolic gesture."

Wikipedia jumps aboard the bogus 'freedom of panorama' bandwagon. Thing that won't happen definitely won't happen (external link)

It's not the possibility of the attempt to limit photography, it's the control and penalties of what happens to the image afterwards. Imagine that you take a picture of a city street and there is a recognizable building in the background. Someone sees the image and wants to use it for a magazine cover and are willing to pay. It sounds like to do so you will have to get the permission from all of the owners of all the buildings to do so. Read the link.

This won't work either, because:
1. you have to apply this rule recursively not to seem like a hypocrite.
2. People will start breaking this rule en-mass out of spite.
3. There is no amount of man-power that you can amass to enforce something like this.
4. Capitalists will sooner see heads roll than lose profit, anything that gets between someone and their investments won't fly.

It does NOT inhibit your rights to take photographs in public places, but it does place restrictions on commercial photographers who intend to profit from the images of public buildings and public art works that are copyrighted.

If the photos are for your own personal use and you don't upload them onto social media you have nothing to worry about.

So if they're yours but as long as you dont actually use them for anything other than storage in a shoebox.

Yes, and this kind of thinking is exactly that of those old farts in the EP who want to limit the Freedom of Panorama. They still think in terms of postcards being made of those pics. It's silly. This is the age of the internet! Everybody is sharing every photo they take, be it on Facebook, Twitter, flickr, forums like this, you name it. To say, ah well, just don't do that any more then, is like saying: don't use a smart phone but use a carrier pigeon...
