Just so you know, here in the USA - most beaches - if you show up with what looks like a professional video rig the police will ask you for your film permit. To shoot professional footage in a public place you have to apply for, pay for, and be approved for a film permit. if you are shooting on a sidewalk you have to pay for police for traffic control, etc... some places are do expensive to get permits for that only large productions can afford them. The cost to shoot at the Santa Monica pier costs around $10,000 last time I checked.
That seems quite the same here actually, ignore that i dont really know how much ppl should pay for shooting,for government(?). I was educated years ago that we can be sentenced for infringement of portrait rights. this is what your example trying to tell. but sadly the condition i personally reckon that Chinese do not have strong consciousness about protecting their portrait right. instead, i do notice that almost all my clients from other countries would care about our using their image to advertise our products.( one of really handsome client do agree~). interesting thing happening here recently, a chinese actor (Huang BaoQiang)not handsome,not that famous, sues a restaurant for $322 thausand for liability of using his image for commercial reason. any way i think thats ok since we take film for personal purpose.we design the camera rigs and if not trying them out while just wait till our clients give us the feedback…no no..test quality, AND have fun!:)@JonPatrickHyde
I know the laws vary considerably between countries... so I don't know if China has laws regarding consent for being filmed. In the US there are laws regarding one's right to privacy and right to control how they are perceived... called publicity rights. You don't need a person's permission to film them in a public place or event so long as you don't use the footage for commercial purposes. So for instance if you filmed a young attractive couple walking down the beach holding hands and kissing... if you planned on selling that footage you'd need them to sign a waiver saying they give up their rights. Let's say you didn't get their permission and they hadn't realized that you had shot footage of them. You sell the footage to a company that makes condoms. Before long an image of this couple is on every box of condoms this company makes. The couple sues you because they are not married and belong to a religion that forbids sex before marriage. Holding hands and kissing is ok... but the couple claims they've experienced emotional trauma because they've been treated harshly by their families and community. the implication is why would they agree to be on the packaging of a sex product if they were not having sex? They win a judgment against you and besides that they also win a judgment against the condom company. That company has to remove all of the packages with their image. This costs the company millions of dollars. Just when you think things can't get worse, the company sues you for damages, millions of dollars. They claim that you sold them footage and photos under false pretenses. Here in the US, ignorance of the law is not a defense for breaking it. This is why I feel professionals should take the time to research and understand the laws of the places where they work. Here in the US, people will walk up to you and ask you if you filmed them. Many will say that you don't have their permission to use their likeness. If you are in a public place and filming for personal, educational, or news related purposes, you don't need their permission. But any other reason, you do.
@JonPatrickHyde Thank you for telling me all that. We designed some rigs and wanna try them out but didnt know it requires film permit. It sounds make sense after your talk~besides ppl dont wanna show into stranger's camera screen...(wow,expensive!)

Hindman Auctions will also introduce the Spring Prints and Multiples sell-off on May 5, 2021. The deal includes an expansive determination of works from Old Master through Contemporary Prints, Photography, and Picasso ceramics. The closeout starts with a prominently solid meeting of Pop Art from Robert Indiana, Andy Warhol, and Roy Lichtenstein with other noteworthy works of art by Wayne Thiebaud, Ed Ruscha, and Ellsworth Kelly. The photography meeting incorporates works by Berenice Abbott, Ansel Adams, and Marilyn Minter among others.

This deal includes a noteworthy cluster of unique works by Magdalena Abakanowicz, Alexander Calder, Sam Francis, Sadamasa Montonaga, Jim Nutt, Tom Wesselmann, and Joan Mitchell, envisioned here, among others. Untitled, 1989 is a dazzling late-vocation Joan Mitchell painting characteristic of both the craftsman's last venture in France and her supported subject of painting from conveyed scene recollections. With her studio in a real sense in Monet's terraces, the touchy spirits of Impressionism occupy this advanced Abstract Expressionist model, adding a convincing referential applied intricacy. We are satisfied to offer this composition in front of Mitchell's impending far reaching review co-coordinated by The Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA). Music assumes an enormous part in the entirety of our lives, and when this JukeBox begins to play, the audience is quickly shipped back to a period before the advanced music age. You feel each fly of the record and hear the tin-sounding speakers, something that is almost difficult to duplicate. Part 3130 in the present deal, A Gentleman's Pursuits, is a 1940s Rock-Ola Model F Juke Box, in Working Condition, with assessments of $3,000-$5,000. The forthcoming American and European Art sale will offer in excess of 130 loads of canvases, figures, and chips away at paper from the nineteenth and twentieth hundreds of years with an eminent choice of Pennsylvania Impressionist scenes, and Modernist and Ashcan works.

The deal will likewise include various twentieth century European works by Henri Le Sidaner, Jean Dufy, and Léonard Tsuguharu Foujita, envisioned here. Painted in 1957 when Foujita was 71 years of age, Lot 72, 'Les Deux Amies' is a private painting in scale at 18 x 13 inches. The piece and curtain are intensely affected by works from the Italian Renaissance and the faces give off an impression of being a response to twentieth century oddity, which shows Foujita's proceeded with interest in the West. The figures are laid out in dark ink and the outside of the composition is razor-slight which harkens back to Foujita's utilization of customary Japanese methods, making this work an exemplary illustration of Foujita's merging of two distinct universes. We are extremely satisfied to have the chance to offer this uncommon work for sale to the public. The past year has given us a new appreciation for in-home dining with beautiful tablescapes and place settings! Thursday's sale, Dining at Home, has everything you need to set the perfect table!

China Bans Funeral Strippers
The Chinese government is in the news this week as the country's ministry of culture announces that they will "crack down on 'stripping' and other acts of illegal business performance market". The statement was released after controversial videos were circulated featuring paid strippers disrobing in front of parents and children at a Handan funeral - resulting in arrests and a $11,300 fine. (I know. This is a lot to process.) Apparently, funeral strippers have turned into quite a trend in both China and Taiwan, as the region's bereaved have been shelling out some serious cash to pay for strip shows that can go as long as two-and-a-half hours. According to Everett Zhang, assistant professor of East Asian Studies at Princeton University, funerals in the area are treated like one lavish party, celebrating with as many people as possible to ensure that their loved one is sent off properly to the afterlife. "In China, when the person who dies is very old and has lived a long life, this kind of occasion becomes purely a celebration." But why strippers?! According to China's official Xinhua news agency, strippers are hired "to attract more mourners," adding that these racy performances "add to the fun". Blame it on cultural difference, but I can see why something like this would deserve to be shut down. However, while Zhang sees where this situation could be problematic, he's particularly surprised at the bold measures the government is taking to put an end to it. "Local people would not be happy about the arrests. That would be really intrusive and offensive." So what do you think? Should the Chinese government be allowed to arrest and fine the bereaved hiring funeral strippers, or should it be left to the family's discretion?
