->> ARTICLE XX. - SIDEWALK PHOTOGRAPHERS[15]

Sec. 30-1316. - Prohibited acts.
It shall be unlawful for any person to engage in the business of taking photographs, intended to be offered for sale, of persons on the streets and sidewalks of the city in front of any place of business other than the person's own, unless the person shall have secured and have with such person at the time the written consent of the owner or manager of that place of business. The taking of photographs of persons on the streets in front of the place of business of another without the written consent of the other shall be deemed an offense under this section, whether or not a charge is made at the time of taking the photographs, if the photographs are taken for the purpose of sale.

->> According to this you can still take photos of people in public places, but can not sell them unless you have written permission from the property owner.

->> As vague and broadly penned, the law would make both news photos and freelance images illegal as well.

->> It's amazing how poorly worded that is. The ordinance doesn't bother to specify that the business in question needs to appear in the image, just that it can't occur in front of said business (presumedly on a public sidewalk) without the prior written consent of the business owner.

I wish it listed the date and author of this ordinance.

->> It doesn't bother to state that the building/business has to appear in the image, only that images can't be made in front of a business - this is about as vague as could be.

Hopefully it is struck down quickly.
