Publishing a few pics of someone in a public place is not a violation. 
But publishing a series of photos of someone in various public places 
in order to build up a fake story is definetly a violation.
The nature of technology will not change this. If one gets 
Kareenaesque in public one should expect the publicity.
Curtailing the press to prevent such things is definetly a violation 
of freedom of the press and public. Of course i can't understand 
what's so interesting about watching some 2pence celebrity screwing 
themselves.
