Issues

Steven Tyler Act

On January 18, 2013, English introduced Senate Bill 465, the proposed "Steven Tyler Act." According the bill, "if [a] person captures or intends to capture, in a manner that is offensive to a reasonable person, through any means a visual image, sound recording, or other physical impression of another person while that person is engaging in a personal or familial activity with a reasonable expectation of privacy," he or she would be liable for the "civil action of constructive invasion of privacy." He or she could be sued for general damages, special damages, and punitive damages worth triple the combined general and special damages. According to the Section 1 of the bill, the new law would especially help celebrities and be named after Steven Tyler, who owns a vacation home on the island of Maui, in honor of his "contribution to the arts in Hawai‘i and throughout the world."[1] The Senate passed the SB 465 on March 5 by a vote of 23-2, and the bill was sent on to the House. Only Senators Les Ihara, Jr. and Samuel Slom voted against the bill.[2] Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie, the Hawaii Tourism Authority, Tyler, Fleetwood Mac drummer Mick Fleetwood, and a number of other celebrities endorsed SB 465. They argued that the paparazzi invade the privacy of celebrities who come to Hawaii to vacation in peace by filming and photographing the celebrities on their private property and that this bill would help promote celebrity tourism in the state. The American Civil Liberties Union, Hawaii Attorney General David M. Louie, the Society of Professional Journalists, and The New York Times opposed the bill, claiming that it would be unconstitutional and suppress journalism.[3][4]
