JK Rowling wins appeal against photo use

JK Rowling has won her appeal against the use by a newspaper of a photograph of her young son, taken while he was being pushed by her in a buggy on a street in Edinburgh in 2004.
And frankly, I don’t blame her.
Regardless of what she does or doesn’t do in her professional life, that should not have any effect on her personal life. If she’s at a professional event, she knows she’s going to get photographed, and she prepares herself for that.
She shouldn’t have to worry about photos being taken of her and her family while they are enjoying private, family time together, or even, as in this case, just going down the street. And her children shouldn’t have to grow up worrying about being pursued by photographers, when their personal life has nothing to do with their mothers job.
