I think if companies in this country (USA) are treated like individuals, then they should adhere to all the laws (where applicable) that we individuals must abide by. Truthfully, this may be the case, but doubt it. I doubt it because I've yet to hear of a restraining order being placed on the media.
To me, following around a person all day long and taking pictures of them should be considered creepy, wrong and labeled correctly - as a stalker. For the most part this is true. If I did this to anyone, there's a very good chance the local police would have a word with me and then some. Yet, I see pictures of random actors and entertainers shopping for groceries all the time. It's not that I even go looking for these pictures, they are everywhere these days. A simple "famous people getting groceries" brought this up right away: http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/celebrities-grocery-shopping-gallery-1.1720823
I doubt I need proof of what I'm saying here, but there you are. Why the heck are we following these people around? Are there really normal people out there who give a darn that (insert whoever) drinks skim milk over 2%? If (whoever) wanted us to know they have a baby coming, wouldn't they tell us? It's not as though these people don't do interviews, or can't pick up a phone and tell someone. I especially love the times when someone goes on a drinking binge and gets caught on camera doing something stupid. Because no one except the rich and famous get drunk and do stupid things. Please, they are normal people who make absurd amounts of money doing something they are very good at, that's it.
If I had some a-hole reporter snapping photos of me buying popcorn at Walmart, I would do everything I could to get a restraining order on the place they work for. I don't mind the idea of interviews, I do find it interesting how a famous persons mind works and how they come up with their ideas, but I DO NOT like the way we treat them on a daily basis. Just because they make millions we can invade their privacy? That's a load of bullocks and it's down right disrespectful.
