[Lifehacker] Photographers' rights
Photographers, know your rights: attorney and photographer advocate Bert P. Krages II has created The Photographer's Right, a PDF file meant to be printed, stowed in your camera bag and distributed in the event of a confrontation.
Nutshell: you have the right to take photos in public places (with a few exceptions), they most likely do not have the right to confiscate your film, and except to law enforcement officials, you're under no obligation to explain the purpose of your photos or reveal your identity.
