Among the various laws signed by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger yesterday was one strengthening an already existing law aimed at paparazzi.

"To curtail the potentially harmful situations and other problems created by out of control paparazzi, AB 524 extends the 'invasion of privacy' laws to persons that purchase, publish, and print images or recordings of individuals, if these persons knew that the images or recordings were obtained illegal," according to Speaker and bill author Karen Bass on her website.

The fine could be up to $50,000. If you want to read the full legal speak text, good luck.
