It seems that the photographer who took those topless photos of Kate Middleton might face a fine and jail time. The photos were said to have been taken from half a mile away... which just really blows my mind! LOL

And, according to French law, public figures like Will and Kate can be photographed by anyone without personal authorization only so long as they are in a public space performing their official duties. But, he adds, if they are in a public space and on holiday when photographed, that can constitute a violation of the aforementioned codes because there has been a theft of private image. http://www.eonline.com/news/346217/kate-middleton-s-topless-photo-taker-jail-time-huge-fine-a-possibility
