How to avoid trouble with your camera on Inauguration Day

If you're planning on heading to Washington DC for the Inauguration next week, we suspect (and encourage) you to bring a camera along to document this historic event. But it's critical that you know and understand the heightened security measures being taken on the National Mall so that a) you can film what you want, and b) you don't get your camera taken away from you.

The Citizen Media Law Project has put together a useful guide to covering the Inauguration, and we recommend a read-through. It provides basic information about the weekend's festivities and proceedings, as well as a list of where you can go, what you can bring, and what you're allowed to do. Not to mention what you should do if you run into trouble.
