Camera phones that don’t “click” when pictures are taken might be banned in the US

In an attempt to fight against illegally-taken pictures, a US congressman wants to promote a new law that would require any camera phone to make a sound whenever a picture is taken.

Furthermore, the phone should not have the option of silencing or disabling the camera sound, and the sound should be loud enough to be heard “within a reasonable radius”.

Said law does seem like a good idea, but, if it will be approved, there are some issues that can appear.


For example, most of the phones that are currently on the market allow users to silence the camera tones. So what would happen to these phones? Would their owners be forced to stop using them? Well, that would be absurd.

Anyway, we’ll see soon if the law is approved or not.
