    • Liney, hows the ice cream shop going. I've been in Michigan all summer and just returned to NC. Sorry I didn't get the chance to make it over to Chesaning, I really wanted to but stayed too busy helping grandpa and fishing.

          Thats OK---I ate your share when I stopped up there at Lineys a couple weeks ago. Thought it was curious, though, that Liney already had it ready, until I noticed he was a bit sad as he said "you might as well eat Chuck's, too", as he kept glancing out towards the entrance drive as if to hope someone in particular might show up before closing time. I guess I know now who he was referring to, especially when he muttered something about "fishing buddy" under his breath...

          • Chuck - Its been an up and down year. Started off pretty well, but now its tailing off. We're going to shut down the day after Labor Day. I'm losing most of my help then, with my college gals going back to school, and my other two "married with children ladies" needing their evenings off.

            So, it will be a wrap on this season, and we'll see how things shape up for next season.

                  • A question for the legal beagles here. I was in Northern Kentucky on business and had the opportunity to check out the Pompeii exhibition at a museum in Cincy recently. I saw a near violent confrontation between museum staff and a person who took some pictures with a cell phone. The staff demanded the cellphone in order to delete the pix and further demand the person buy the exhibition book as recompense. PHOTOGRAPHY IST STRICTLY VERBOTEN!!!

                    Now I collect old books (among other things). I love illuminated manuscripts. I understand where flash photography is forbidden in places like the Louvre, the British Museum and the British Library because the repeated intense light of flash photography can damage or fade many century old illustrations.

                    But statues, coins, and jewelry? I gladly pay my $20 to frolick among the artifacts, but can they (the museum) really ban you from taking photos? Sure, setting up a tripod with professional equipment in order to get high grade sellable pix could reasonably be prohibited. But tourists taking pix? Can they really do anything other than ask you to leave? I ask this question concerning American law.

                    I was once scolded for taking a picture of the British crown jewels in the Tower of London, the concern was images of the security measures, not the jewels themselves. Once they saw I was a stupid American tourist, the angst level went down. Matter of fact, I was allowed to take a couple of flashless shots of the Swords of State by the Beefeater guards when they were looking (wink wink) the other way. They don't get many people more interested in the history/archeology than the monetary value of the displays. I bought the books (and the t-shirt) anyway.

                    • In some places there may be an extra charge for the right to take pix. And perhaps there's a diff in the laws for public-sector museums and those privately owned?

                      • I don't know of any law or legal principle that would prohibit a ban on photography. Hack is basically right that a private museum would have more right to restrict photographs as it would not be subject to a potential first amendment argument as first amendment rights are only protected against federal or state action.

                          • Searching around, variations of this

                            Works on loan to the Museum or in exhibitions in the Featured Exhibition galleries may not be photographed.

                            are widespread

                            • Most art museums I have been in have restrictions on photography. It is usually okay to photograph the older stuff (with no flash), but anything with an existing copyright is a no-no.

                              And yeah, if something is a special exhibit that's separate admission from the main museum, photographs are almost always off-limits
