Britax Backs The “No Kids Policy” For Paparazzi Pics Of Celebrity Kids
http://wp.me/a17loP-aWhBritax has just made history today in an effort to end their promotion of any and all photos of celebrities using Britax products if they’ve been taken without consent. This has been pledged by the company in an effort to end the increasing number of disturbances caused when paparazzi pursue celebrity kids. In a press release issued yesterday, Britax asks paparazzi to discontinue taking any unauthorized photos involving celebrities’ children and Britax products.
“Jennifer Garner, Halle Berry, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard1 are just a few celebrity parents taking a stand against this intrusive type of photography, given their own distressing experiences with the paparazzi and their children. Last fall, their efforts contributed to the passing of Senate Bill 606 in California. The bill increases penalties for intentional harassment of children, which can be defined as taking photos of children without parental consent. Despite the legislation, paparazzi are still obtaining unauthorized photos.”
I think this is a long time coming. It’s so refreshing to see a company stand up against this issue! Britax is encouraging other manufacturers – especially those that cater to children and families – to join the “No Kids Policy” and end the proliferation of these unauthorized photos.
What are your thoughts on this new policy?]
