Have you ever decided not to publish your work because of whatever reason?
Accident pics...would you publish them?
Have you had problems with security guards? Misunderstandings with police? Accusations of terrorism?
Have you been told that they would sue you just because of the pics you took?
Couldn’t you also just put the images as location withheld? That would surely solve any security concerns.
Apologies for the very bland reply.

On the other hand, there are times when I've been asked to leave parking lots that have come across as more than a little absurd - yes, it is private property, but the parking lot isn't closed, I'm disturbing no one, and I'm not seeing anything that can't easily be seen by ordinary visitors regardless. I still <i>do</i> leave, because I think the practicality of the hobby depends on the willingness of airports and their neighbors to tolerate it and part of that is being polite.
As far as trespassing, I try to stop at the first locked gate or fence that I reach unless permitted otherwise - I'm like a vampire, I have to be invited!
For instance, at Eindhoven you can make great photos of the military apron from parking 5. There is a unspoken agreement between the air force and the local spotters group that photography is fine, but photos with people or security objects can not be published

There's also the question about profiting from images made of other people's property .
