Making Cameras Go Click
There's a bill in Congress—unlikely to go anywhere—to force digital cameras to go "click." The idea is that this will make surreptitious photography harder:
The bill's text says that Congress has found that "children and adolescents have been exploited by photographs taken in dressing rooms and public places with the use of a camera phone."
This is so silly it defies comment.
EDITED TO ADD (2/13): Apparently this is already law in Japan.
