58. You can be restricted from taking pictures of
a surprising number of places in the US. For example you can not take photos in most Malls. They are considered private property and the owners can control photo taking among many other things. In fact photography of any privately owned property is at the discretion of the owner with the exception that it is permissible to take photos of any private building if the photographer remains on public property. Also it is illegal to take photos through a window of someones home. Military bases have restricted areas where photos are not allowed.

This case however never should have come to trial and you will notice the charges were not about taking pictures. Public areas should not have restrictions on photography.

I'm posting this because your statement above that it is "absolutely not illegal to take pictures of anything in this country" could get someone in trouble.
