Do we have law to deal with menace of Video Voyeurism?
  | Thursday, October 15, 2009
Realizing the ever growing menace of the Video Voyeurism, the USA, passed federal legislation known as the Video Voyeurism Prevention Act of 2004, which prohibits knowingly capturing an image of private area of an individual by video tape, photograph, film, or any means or broadcast without that individual’s consent and under circumstances in which the individual has a reasonable expectation of privacy. (See relevant Section 1801 of Video Voyeurism Prevention Act of 2004) Thus the said law, make it a crime to secretly record or distribute images of people in places where they have a reasonable expectation of privacy, such as bathrooms, dressing rooms, locker rooms, hotel rooms and mall etc. The law defines a “private area” as the naked or undergarment clad genitals, pubic area, buttocks, or female breast of an individual. The law however makes an exception and does not apply to people engaged in lawful law enforcement or intelligence activities.
