Re: PlayStation Home camera misuse: Complaint

May 17, 2013

I don't like being taken in pictures in real life. I don't really like it more on home. But there is a limit to what we can reasonably ask about it. Over my years on home I became a little more acustom to it. I still don't like it much, but I don't frantically run when I see (or hear) someone using it's camera anymore. To me the fact that the ID don't show offer us reasonable privacy.

All avatars and dlc are the intelectual property of Sony and the developers in question. It is not you. there is no privacy issue here.

To OP. The title of this thread is incorrrect. Using the camera to take pictures in public or private spaces isn't 'imisuse'. That's what it was designed for.

Apparently the OP fails to realize that everything we do in Home is tracked and stored from the moment we log in.

 

Pictures are simply a different form of data gathering. You have no privacy here. If you think otherwise, then you have very little understanding of how this whole thing works. Random user taking your picture is just someone else grabbing some data.

C'mon ; learning that a member of Home is very uncomfortable with having their Picture taken,

should not mean it's open season on hunting them down and snapping away.

That, is way to close to stalking and harassment. Trolling.

Shame on you.

 

Queen : It is a given that other members taking pics anywhere on Home is within the rules.

Since it is, perhaps you might want to consider a change in the way you look at Photo activity ?

 

Granted, you may be so beautiful, that you have given celibates and priests reason to reconsider their vows, but . . .

Not all Pics are going to be focused on you.

Think of any Cameras turned your way as a compliment. Accept it as such, and no longer react negatively.

You'll have more fun on Home, if you can adjust :smileyhappy:

 

Believe me; the fuss and muss over whiring lenses is not worth the stress. . . but . . .

if they are trying to get Pics of your nether region; report if you wish, do a Joanna on 'em ( put on ignore), and just keep having fun.

THE TEN LEGAL COMMANDMENTS OF PHOTOGRAPHY

 

I. Anyone in a public place can take pictures of anything they want. Public places include parks, sidewalks, malls, etc. Malls? Yeah. Even though it’s technically private property, being open to the public makes it public space.

 

II. If you are on public property, you can take pictures of private property. If a building, for example, is visible from the sidewalk, it’s fair game.

 

III. If you are on private property and are asked not to take pictures, you are obligated to honor that request. This includes posted signs.

 

IV. Sensitive government buildings (military bases, nuclear facilities) can prohibit photography if it is deemed a threat to national security.

 

V. People can be photographed if they are in public (without their consent) unless they have secluded themselves and can expect a reasonable degree of privacy. Kids swimming in a fountain? Okay. Somebody entering their PIN at the ATM? Not okay.

 

VI. The following can almost always be photographed from public places, despite popular opinion:

  • accident & fire scenes, criminal activities
  • bridges & other infrastructure, transportation facilities (i.e. airports)
  • industrial facilities, Superfund sites
  • public utilities, residential & commercial buildings
  • children, celebrities, law enforcement officers
  • UFOs, the Loch Ness Monster, Chuck Norris

VII. Although “security” is often given as the reason somebody doesn’t want you to take photos, it’s rarely valid. Taking a photo of a publicly visible subject does not constitute terrorism, nor does it infringe on a company’s trade secrets.

 

VIII. If you are challenged, you do not have to explain why you are taking pictures, nor to you have to disclose your identity (except in some cases when questioned by a law enforcement officer.)

 

IX. Private parties have very limited rights to detain you against your will, and can be subject to legal action if they harass you.

 

X. If someone tries to confiscate your camera and/or film, you don’t have to give it to them. If they take it by force or threaten you, they can be liable for things like theft and coercion. Even law enforcement officers need a court order.

Maybe they thought they were playing Fatal Frame, and thought you were an old decrepit ghost so they went in to take a picture and get super ghost points.

How do you know that the other users involved are in fact taking your picture?

 

While I'm seldom a fan of evidence, I don't protest if someone takes a picture in my presence. I don't generally assume that it must be a picture of me that they want either.

Here's a creepy thought. A lot of us have PVR equipment. We might not only be taking shots without you knowing, Illuminati, we might also be filming your every move in Home! How can you tell? You can't. It's the same in real life, how closely are you watched? Closer than you think. You just don't know til someone admits it or is blatantly obvious.

Jersquall: Any new news on Home on PS4 yet?

Tempest_Fire: Due to a shifting landscape, PlayStation Home will cease publishing new content on November 12, 2014.
