New law to make it impossible to turn off shutter sound on cell phone cameras



H.R. 414 (111th): Camera Phone Predator Alert Act

quote:

H.R. 414, better known as the Camera Phone Predator Alert Act. Here's the text of the proposed legislation:

A BILL

To require mobile phones containing digital cameras to make a sound when a photograph is taken.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.
This Act may be cited as the ‘Camera Phone Predator Alert Act’.

SEC. 2. FINDING.
Congress finds that children and adolescents have been exploited by photographs taken in dressing rooms and public places with the use of a camera phone.

SEC. 3. AUDIBLE SOUND STANDARD.
(a) Requirement- Beginning 1 year after the date of enactment of this Act, any mobile phone containing a digital camera that is manufactured for sale in the United States shall sound a tone or other sound audible within a reasonable radius of the phone whenever a photograph is taken with the camera in such phone. A mobile phone manufactured after such date shall not be equipped with a means of disabling or silencing such tone or sound.

(b) Enforcement by Consumer Product Safety Commission- The requirement in subsection (a) shall be treated as a consumer product safety standard promulgated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission under section 7 of the Consumer Product Safety Act (15 U.S.C. 2056). A violation of subsection (a) shall be enforced by the Commission under section 19 of such Act (15 U.S.C. 2068).

What if you're at a recital or somewhere and don't want to make noise?

The law this is made for is for people who will just jailbreak a phone to get around it.

Rooted Android phone or Jailbroken iPhone is the only solution, I'd imagine.

Ehhh, I don't think that for people not jailbreaking their phones now this will make them start doing it.
