Who has the stupidest proposed law?

In the red corner, the USA, where a law is proposed that will require mobile phones containing digital cameras to make a sound when a photograph is taken (Camera Phone Predator Alert Act).

In the blue corner, the UK plans to make it illegal to take pictures of officers 'likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism' (Counter-Terrorism Act 2008)

  1. The UK seems to love making things illegal on the basis that they might be useful to someone who might do something bad.
