Weblog ´Geenstijl´ received a warning from the ´landsadvocaat´ about the placement of pictures of WA and Maxima in an apple shop in NYC. They claim victory, for those who read dutch, check this out.

In the mean time royal blog is wondering about the strictness of the mediacode, which dutch speakers can read here.

H. Jacobs wrote a piece on hios www.royalblog.nl about the mediacode. He had an article about the Argentinian media during the visit of WA, Maxima and the A-team and showed a part of a page in an Argentinian boulevard magazine. The picture showed esp. the title of the article and you could justsee a face of Maxima. Anyway, he received a letter from the ´landsadvocaat´ that he had to remove the photo...

In his plea he does mention that it is a rather odd situation that the Dutch press can not place pictures while the foreign press can and does. These foreign magazines are sold in The Netherlands as well, so....

Magazine 'Story' has lost the lawsuit that the Prince of Orange and Princess Maxima started against them for publishing pictures of maxima, Amalia and Alexia on the beach in Wassenaar, in June 2007.

You can read the verdict of the Amsterdam Court here (in Dutch only). Apparently the magazine has to pay 3000 euros. Funny that they included Amalia and Alexia in the list of plaintiffs too.

Not that funny,their privacy was in the line too,so for jurisprudence this was the right way to formulate.

Amsterdam television station AT5 was summoned by the RVD to remove two pictures and a videoclip from their website about the 10th wedding anniversairy of Prince Maurits and Princess Marilene. Considering that several royals (including princess Margriet) actually posed for the camera's it is rather odd IMO. AT5 removed the images, even though they never signed the mediacode.

I understand that the royals want some privacy but to force this is IMO too much. If they want privacy, celebrate somewhere in a castle in a forest, not in one of the busiest parts of the center of the capital of the country!

The RVD also summoned gossip magazine ' Party' not to publish pictures of celebrity friends of Maurits and Marilene that attended the party... which is od as thus far friends of the royal family were not included in the mediacode.

(Source: De Pers)

-
I think the RVD is trying how far they can go, legally... but by demands like these, that seem a bit childish to many Dutchmen they are pushing their luck and I don' t think the press will accept this treatment for much longer, which means the mediacode will implode sooner or later.

Newspaper 'De Pers' still has two pictures of the event and probably will refuse to take them off the website when asked, they also provided the information above, the article in Dutch can be found here.

I think that the RVD is getting ridiculous about it. My goodness, it's not if they were fotographed somewhere private, it's on a public road!! Most members of the Dutch RF are not that fussy about photo's, only when their children are involved, which I can understand. Allthough, I don't think it is good for the children in the long term to be kept out of publicity all the time, they will have to get used to it in the future, otherwise they will have an equally odd behaviour towards the press as WA has.

I agree sneeuwklokje, as long as it is to protect their children from overly intruisive media coverage nobody minds this media code, and actually tends to sympathise with it. But to many, occassions like this makes the RVD seem petty and the RF seem like a bunch of whining, spoiled and over priviledged people (not that they are btw). As long as the press doesn't take the cause too seriously I suppose the damage done is small but if they choose to start some sort of hyped campaign about this (as they have done with nearly every other royalty related subject the last decade) I suppose it will be difficult for the RVD to continue to be as strict as they are.

It's not only called censorship, it's also executed in the most absurd way as the latest examples of this censorship are indeed petty and ill-advised.
Protecting the Dutch Royals' privacy (on holiday, on a beach, going shopping etc.) is one thing, prohibiting the publication of photos from recent appearances in public (Maxima waving and wearing glasses in Argentina, now the birthday pics) is quite another.
I think they should be much more careful about this restriction of the freedom of the press as the media did truly not invade their privacy on these occasions. Once people in general become more aware of the questionable institution of this 'mediacode', the Dutch RF might risk a well-deserved backlash.

I agree. Especially with the "Maxima wears glasses" photo, she is actually smiling at the photographer. Not exactly how one would react if you didn't want your picture being taken.

Website zijonline has an article about the mediacode here (in Dutch only).

The title is ' good news for (gossip magazine) Prive, bad news for the RVD'.

The European court has ruled against Princess Caroline of Monaco and she has to allow that magazines have a right to publish her holiday photos as they have news value. As the Dutch mediacode is based on the first ruling of the European court of Princess Caroline against the German rags, this means that Dutch courts will probably have to do the same in Dutch magazines decide to publish holiday photos of the RF.

The RVD is going to sue the Leeuwarder Courant as the newspaper published a picture of the prince of Orange, princess Máxima and their daughters holidaying on the lakes in Friesland.

The newspaper won't be invited to photo shoots of the family either.

Magazine 'Nieuwe Revu' has announced that they will no longer comply with the media code, and placed a picture of princess Catharina-Amalia playing field hockey in their latest issue. The editor thinks that the media code is not fitting fora modern democracy.

Nieuwe Revu breekt mediacode Oranjes - MEDIA - PAROOL

By the time that the princesses have reached an age that they will be more interesting for the press I am sure that many more will break the code btw.

This afternoon, the RVD (goverment information service) started a legal procedure against the magazine Nieuwe Revu.

It seems that the magazine underestimated the effect of their breech of the media code. They said they didn't expect the RVD to start a lawsuit, just a few days before the inauguration. The editor also says that placing the photos of a 9 y/o girl wasn't 'the best idea ever'. He says that he should have looked for pictures of adult members of the RF.

In other words the editor thought the royal household would be too busy getting ready for the inauguragtion and he could get away with publishing the pictures and breaking the code of conduct. Doesn't sound like an excuse that would hold up in court.

Hmm, minor child photographed on a school playground without permission, published without permission, violation of the media code. What is so hard to understand? They have sued successfully in the past where their children are concerned.

This had nothing to do with a media code,this has everything to do with a rotten magazine with lousy articles and dwelling numbers of subscriptions,from 58.000 to 32000 in less then two years and they use Amalia to raise the sales!A minor photographed without permission indeed,what if it was one of the children of one of out posters or guests...would they allow some a-hole to take pics of their child?..Nah.don't think so...Well,they're sooo lucky I'm not around,i would kick 'm in a canal on first sight and walk on whistling..Infuriating twisted scum,that's all Nieuwe Revu is.And thank goodness for the Media-code and let no-one think they can screw that in this idiotic age of hypes and wipes.Nunca!They will NEVER set the rules!!
