Video Nudes

The Wisconsin Supreme Court has ruled that it it’s illegal to film nude people without their permission.  This could affect the rights of privacy at places such as Mazo Beach. 

Generally speaking, photographs taken in public settings don’t need permission for commercial use if individuals are not readily recognizable, so crowd pictures are fairly safe to use.

Cameras at the beach are an occasional problem, usually quickly remedied.  Realistically though, without legal merit.  This ruling should make a better case for not allowing even personal use of pictures taken at the beach without permission.

Read about the ruling here:  Yahoo News

There is a catch:  the ruling relates to secret filming.  It might not apply if it was done openly, without secrecy.  And there’s no law against taking pictures on public land.

There is a law of nature, though.  Cameras don’t float…  

This Might be a Good Time for This…

Nude Beaches Are Good for the Local Economy

This article is relevant to Mazo inasmuch as we do contribute to the local economy by camping nearby, shopping and dining, motel stays and just general touristing.

It’s important the the local merchants remember this so, if you can, feel free to mention the reason you’re in town.  Even folks that are not real comfortable with our lifestyle still appreciate our contributions to their business establishment.
