    Hidden Cameras may soon be banned

    I am surprised/shocked that there was no law aganist such activities.

    Hidden sex cameras may soon be banned

    Hidden video cameras in bedrooms, bathrooms and other private places would be outlawed under a bill introduced in Congress Tuesday that would also limit pornographic Web sites to an online red-light district.

    Television star Angie Harmon and privacy activist Susan Wilson joined Louisiana Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu to announce a bill that would make it illegal to film someone for a "lewd or lascivious purpose" without that person's consent.

    Violators would face an unspecified fine and up to three years of jail time, or 10 years if the filmed subject was under 18.

    Adults-only Internet domain
    The bill would also require Web sites containing pornography, hate speech or other material deemed harmful to minors to give up their ".com" Web addresses and register under an adults-only Internet domain such as ".prn."

    Such an approach could prove troublesome, as other congressional attempts to regulate online content have been struck down in the courts or run aground on free-speech concerns. Moreover, Internet domains are created and approved not by the Congress but by an independent, international body.

    A bill approved last week by the House Commerce Committee would seek to protect children from inappropriate online content by creating a kid-safe Internet space within the United States' ".us" domain.

    A House staffer who has worked on the issue said that Commerce Committee members decided their approach was workable because it would not limit speech online, nor would it seek to impose decency standards on other countries.

      I have no comments on hidden camera, as they should always be condemned.

      However, about the domain name thingy, I think the main sticking point with ICANN is that who will decide if the website should give up .com and get .porn or whatever. ICANN says it won't be doing that bcz pornography laws vary too much between countries (e.g. USA and Holland etc).

      At best US Congress can put up laws which govern servers physically placed within US. Thats about it.

        once i saw on Oprah show where it was mentioned that there used to be hidden camera inside the mirrors in the fitting rooms in most of the expensive clothing stores. And most of the time security watchers were men!!! Does anyone knows about it? it also said that the laws has been changed now and instead they have women securities now or they don't have them inside the mirrors anymore.

            It was shown on oprah show two yrs ago. I don't know how much law has changed now. But many women were virtually raped and never even knew about it at that times. I remember, they called up a lady who also worked with the men securities and she told Oprah that these security guys would laugh and enjoy their time of work. At that time there were hardly any women securities. After that a serious action was taken, and now they have strickly men for men's fitting rooms and vice versa. But i think this implies to only very expensive stores in US where stealing is very common. Don't know about Canada.

              Thats why I always wear spandex tops/pants when going shopping for clothes. Someone I knew worked at a department store and once spilled it that its unchecked where he works, so any employee can look into the fitting rooms.

                    how can hidden cameras be in the mirrors???

                    does anybody know how to find out if cameras are hiding some where..

                    we had cameras almost every where in high school, most students didn't like it. But administrations said that it is for your own safety.
