There’s a simple solution to the paparazzi problem. All Congress has to do is pass a law giving qualified, registered celebrities ownership of all pictures taken of them. The effect of the law would be to prevent publication of those photos or videos without their permission. Without the ability to sell their services, that will be that for the paparazzi business. Celebrities can always choose to permit the use of material they consider acceptable by selected publications and television programs.
