The NPPA is looking for input on photographers regarding copyright. Please read the following article and if you feel strongly about it send them your feedback.
To protest horrible photography contracts similar to Taylor Swifts, a newspaper sends a cartoonist instead of a photographer.

I think it is important that the press be able to print the news unrestricted and uncensored.
In the case of Taylor Swift and her crippling contract she is inviting the press to photograph her event. If she doesn't want to invite them that is her choice, but she shouldn't be able to censor their work, damage their equipment or destroy their photos.
As to getting managements approval, after the tour, this is another form of censorship. If I own the copyright of an image I must not be restricted in how I can exercise my copyright.
As an example if I was invited to a concert and the artist did something embarrassing, I should have free reign to publish it however and wherever I wanted without fear of reprisals.
If she doesn't like that then she should hire her own photographers and then she can completely control how her image is marketed.
