Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler Sees Anti-Paparazzi Bill Voted Into Law


Rock icon Steven Tyler recently spoke out about his desire for a new law to protect the privacy of celebrities from intrusions by increasingly agressive paparazzi. The singer lobbied for Hawaii Senate Bill 465, now known as ‘The Steven Tyler Act.’

Last week it was announced that the bill has been passed, meaning intrusive paparrazos can now be sued for photographing stars with their families or during personal activities that should remain private to families.

According to E! Online, paparrazi can be sued if “the person captures or intends to capture, in a manner that is offensive to a reasonable person, through any means a visual image, sound recording, or other physical impression of another person while that person is engaging in a personal or familial activity with a reasonable expectation of privacy.”
