“Steven Tyler Act” Passed In Hawaii

This week the state of Hawaii’s state legislature approved “The Steven Tyler Act”, legislation named after the lead vocalist for the band Aerosmith.  The act would make it easier for Tyler and other celebrities who either visit or live in the state to sue the paparazzi or anyone else who invades their privacy.

The act officially make it easier for a celebrity to sue anyone who “attempts to capture, in a manner that is offensive to a reasonable person, any type of visual image, sound recording, or other physical impression of the plaintiff engaging in a personal or familial activity on land owned or leased by the plaintiff.”

The  lawmakers of Hawaii hope that the act will make their state more attractive to rich and famous people, with hopes that they will purchase property there.  Steven Tyler lives part time on the Hawaiian island of Maui, and he testified on behalf of the act.
