New Law to Require 'Click' from Camera Phones

Article Comments  100+  

Jan 26, 2009, 3:28 PM   by Eric M. Zeman

A new bill has been introduced to congress that would require camera phones to create a click or other audible noise when the phones are used to take pictures. The bill is called the Camera Phone Predator Alert Act, and would prohibit a camera phone from being equipped with a means of disabling or silencing the tone. The bill would fall under the domain of the Consumer Product Safety Commission and be treated as a safety requirement. The noise would have to be audible to anyone in a "reasonable distance" of the camera phone.
