Public Law 108-495

Public Law 108-495 institutes the "Video Voyeurism Prevention Act of 2004."

It "amends the Federal criminal code to prohibit knowingly videotaping, photographing, filming, recording by any means, or broadcasting an image of a private area of an individual, without that individual’s consent, under circumstances in which that individual has a reasonable expectation of privacy.

It further defines a "private area" as "the naked or undergarment clad genitals, pubic area, buttocks, or female breast of an individual."

However, the government is exempt from this act. The prohibition is "inapplicable to lawful law enforcement, correctional, or intelligence activity."
