More privacy restrictions or fair decision?

Paul Weller has won damages from a daily newspaper in the UK after a freelance photographer took some pictures of his children in a public place:

On one hand, it was a public place.  On the other hand, it was in a newspaper and presumably intended to help sell more copies.

Do you see this as more evidence of censorship, or a correct decision based on what the intended use of the photos was?  Interestingly, the damages were awarded in the UK, even though the photos were taken in LA (and apparently legally under California law).
