The paparazzi have their excesses, granted. But they exist for the purpose of gratifying the fans of celebrities. Fans, without whom, celebrities would achieve no fame whatsoever. Thus, if you want privacy, don't become a celebrity! Or at the very least, prepare to live reclusively. Otherwise, your fame make you fair game. Suck-it-up and use all your money to buy a tall fence or sumpthin. That aside, such a law could eventually morph into a prohibition against tailing and taking pictures of public officials and politicians. I don't give one good hoot about what celebrities do or don't. Politicians and public officials however, need to be closely watched!
This kind of law definitely leads to a "slippery slope" argument. It seems like it would eventually lead to making public photography of any non-consenting individual illegal.
