Google Glass Banned From Cinemas In USA
A massive selling point of Google Glass is the ease with which you can film on it. So you can easily capture those magic moments. However it didn’t go unnoticed that you could also quite easily sit in the cinema and record the latest film, making pirating very easy. This is why wearable technology has been banned from cinemas across America.
The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) and the National Association of Theater Owners (NATO) have revealed a “zero tolerance” policy when it comes to Google Glass and also other wearable technology devices.
NATO have announced that if you fail to put Google Glass away when in a cinema then you will at least be asked to leave. However if managers of the cinema suspect that you could possibly have been recording a film illegally then they will reserve the right to call the police. Everybody knows you can’t go into a cinema and record it with your smartphone, so why would using Google Glass be ok? It is highly likely that a worldwide cinema ban for Google Glass will follow very soon.
