Camera phones: is this all crazy?
Posted on 5-Apr-2003 09:43 by M Freitas | Tags Filed under: Articles

According to the BBC UK article the Italian information commisioner issued regulations on what people can do with the phones. In Saudi Arabia the 'Commission for Promoting Virtue and Preventing Vice' banned camera enabled mobile phones from the country. In Edinburgh, Scotland, a lap dance club bans the camera phones for the sake of protection of dancers and (blushed) patrons (caught where they're not supposed to be).

I wonder if this kind of mass hysteria happened before when the compact cameras were first released to the public? Or perhaps when Polaroids were created?

These days you don't see anyone being asked to leave a camera, digital or 35mm, behind. Unless of course the person is going to a high profile attraction, like a movie opening, or a paparazzi adverse star's party.

I've heard rumours of some gymn clubs banning mobile phones, ALL of them, from change rooms. "Someone took pictures of naked women and sent it using a mobile". Hoax? Reality?

Do you have any story to tell? You can use our forums to discuss.
