Proposed changes to United States Forest Service rules for photographers and videographers have some first amendment groups concerned that journalists would be required to obtain permits and pay up to $1,500 in fees to photograph within national park boundaries, according to a report by The Oregonian.
The Oregonian quotes first amendment groups and politicians who are expressing concern about a vaguely worded directive, which could be interpreted to require special permits for all uses other than breaking news situations. Other news situations would appear to require a permit, The Oregonian says.
