Half as Interesting : To clarify, just because you can find an image on Google doesn't mean it's legal. This law is very loosly enforced but still is a law.

LucasArg : I never knew buildings were copyrighted!

gaming4you : Alright, so my next goal is to go to Paris and start flying vlogs and other videos at night around the Eiffel tower. That's a really shit restriction

Safa : sometimes humans are so extra bruh

Javed Ali : My current wallpaper is Eiffel Tower at night,THUG LIFE. B|

Alltimeboxing : I'm french and never heard of this. Eiffel tower is filmed and photographed every day and every night by thousands of ppl/tourists. Plus with all the crime, the terrorism, and considering how full prisons are and how busy cops are.... there are approximately 0.00000001 chance to get in trouble for that. Only thing you risk doing that at night is being attacked by thugs for your camera.

My Instant Search : Next thing I'm gonna search now is "Eiffel tower at night" lol

P̷s̷ʏ̷ᴄ̷ʜ̷ᴏ̷ᴛ̷ɪ̷ᴄ̷ R̷ᴀ̷ɪ̷ɴ̷ʙ̷ᴏ̷ᴡ̷ᴢ̷ : Panorama is in Europe??

John Doe : Are you not breaking the law by posting those blurred out pictures, because one could simply consider those pictures "low resolution"

karthi keyan : In China the people's private parts are copyrighted ... that's why they are blurred in porn movies ..😂😂😂

Calvin236 : There's a time lapse of the Eiffel Tower at night that came with my Apple Watch. Send Tim Cook to jail!

Jeet Sharma : 'Searches Effiel Tower at Night on Google'

Soheil Nikdoust : Fuck all of these stupid ridiculous laws😆😆😆 r u kiddin me? I'll be sent to fuckin jail just cuz I took a picture from that metallic dildo at night?

Amit Kumar : This type of stupid restrictions are called as *chutiyapa* in Hindi.

Vanick Bg : I am a fifteen years and last year i went to Paris and took a picture of the Eiffel Tower at night. Damn it now they're probably gonna find me and do something on me to prevent me building a replica of the Tower. Bad time to be living :( LOL

Cars Overdose : The Eiffle Tower is built with the Algerian steel.

Elnathan Wong : Hey look I created a magnificent building and I want the world to see my wonderful creation but God forbid it’s in another persons video oh please God no!

Sam Randolph : That's not how this works. Even if a building is copyrighted, that doesn't make taking photographs of it illegal, because you're not reproducing the building. This is true of images, video, and text (since they can of course be copied digitally). It's not true of a building unless you actually build an exact replica - simply taking a photo (or even drawing a picture) of what a building looks like is not any sense making a copy of that building. Now, if the image of the building is trademarked or if its design is a trade secret, that would be a different story. For the purposes of copyright, though, there's nothing inherently illegal about reproducing the image of a building.

Mr. Voicecrack : Haha, bullshit.

esco : I litterly searched up "eiffel tower at night" on google and it's there.

Rishabh Nair : but what about Rush Hour 3? they had the whole end climax shown on the eiffle tower!

Yuuma _ : Actiolly, youre wrong. Yes, you could show us all that censored images. Just because you are showing them on a video, does not mean you own them... So you can't say that you can't show that to us because you could. There is a thing called fair use where you can show other things not ownimg them... Idk why you said you could not show that censored thing but you are fooling people. Sry for english mistakes.

Anonymous Official : https://youtu.be/R3hCIrk0DbA what's that then ?

Greg Annucci : dumbest video ever, completely misleading and full of half-truths. Glad I used adblock so the creators got zero from me.

Goog Phi : Copyright is wrong . You cant own a design or idea. Nobodies idea is original. Ask yourself if the ideas have are your own !!! Nothing you think is your own it is all from outside. You dont own shit. Copyright is slavery. I buy a CD a book software etc it is 100% mine i can do with it as i please share and show it to anyone . If taking a picture is copyrighted then you have to blindfold everyone from seeing a so called copyrighted building. If you dont want you imaginary ownership of your ideas to be shared then dont make it for the public to buy or to see.

UnPhayzable : "Welcome to the Salty Spittoon, how tough are ya?" "I took a picture of the Eiffel Tower." "So?" " *At night.* " "Oh shit come on in."

newmagicfilms : I've google it now : *eiffel tower at night* . And I've got the results i've wanted to , even apply the filter to use them in commercial way

the delta gamer : the reason why it's illegal to take photos at night is sooooooo thinking outside the box
