Arnold Schwarzenegger introduced a new law concerning paparazzi's harmful action to public
Finally the law of restricting hardcore photographers from harming the public has come into real form in California as former movie star Arnold Schwarzenegger who now becomes the state's governor introduced the new law right on the first day of the 2006. It strongly states that anyone who commits assault in an attempt to get a photograph/video recording has to pay triple damages and hands down profits from the photograph.
Eagerly welcomed the law, Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney Bill Hodgman expressed his support upon its materialization and advised all celebrities who become victims of any vicious photographers to contact his office. "We encourage them to come to us with their complaints and then co-operate with us in an effort to bring these people to justice," he said. At last those stars can have little peace for themselves from now on.
