#Photographers should pay a fee for taking pictures of Stonehenge with commercial intentions. This is another important photo object after Eiffel Tower. £75 for editorial use should a photographer pay. In the beginning of 2010 there was a similar case in Germany. Photographers organization „Deutsche Journalisten-Verband“ (DJV) won the lawsuit against „Stiftung Preußische Schlösser und Gärten“.  „Stiftung Preußische Schlösser und Gärten“ tried to collect a fee so called „Knipsgebühr“.  The judge on photographers right: „…otherwise photographers can only take pictures without a risk only at home or on high sea. „ Germans law is one of the best in the world, isn‘t it?

    In all National Parks of South Africa you have to pay 150 EUR per day for commercial photographing and 300 EUR for filming (no matter if wildlife or landscape and if for magazines, calendars, stock, TV ..). And before you start you have to submit an application form (4 pages) to get a license.
