I think I'll have to disagree with a few points you made. First of all, I don't think one can say that celebrities only have the right to be angry at the paparazzi when "physically hurt". I'm writing a law essay on that specific matter and although you can't always blame them for doing their "job", it's exactly the same for celebrities. You can't blame them for leading the hollywood life and sometimes express contempt for these picture-chasers. It's also a job to be an actress or a singer, but unlike paparazzi they are unable to say "ok, it's 7 PM, I'm off the job". They have to deal with their celebrity 24/7 and they can't resign. Being famous hasn't always been about being chased (thanks to people's voyeurism…) and everyone should have the right to choose a career and not suffer from it. Moreover, I'm deeply shocked when I read that their lives "is somewhat owned by the public".
Nobody owns anyone. Celebrities are still human beings and they have the right to privacy like everyone.
As for the illegal pics, I'm not complaining since if we don' have them we won't be having some pretty good threads here.
TRF doesn't feed on illegal pictures or speculations. If good threads for you have to be nourished by pictures taken against someone's will, then I do understand why paparazzi and tabloids earn so much.
