Anyway, I have this written in a notebook from maybe five years ago: A plot point in one of them hinges on a fictional piece of legislation called the Digital Surveillance Privacy Act (DSPA), which (among other things) would mandate that all cameras must make an audible beep or click when they take a picture. I had intended this to be a sarcastic commentary on ludicrous security-theater legislation. As is typical of satire, I exaggerated it beyond anything I thought likely to really happen. Well, guess what is on the House floor? The Camera Phone Predator Alert Act, which specifies exactly what I imagined. As Bruce Schneier said, this is so silly it defies comment. They even gave the law a goofier name than I did.
