A decision by the supreme court is a real blow to a photographers rights. States are not subject to copyright infringement.

This is disappointing, but remember that you can sue the individual responsible for the infringement, even if the individual is an employee of the state.  If you let the state actor know that you're going to sue "Joe Smith" individually, the state actor usually pays for Smith's infringement.
