Hawaii Considers Celebrity Bill

Aerosmith lead singer Steven Tyler testifies on celebrity privacy during a hearing at the Hawaii Capitol in Honolulu on Friday. Rock legends Steven Tyler and Mick Fleetwood convinced a Hawaii Senate committee on Friday to approve a bill to protect celebrities or anyone else from intrusive paparazzi. The state Senate Judiciary Committee approved the so-called Steven Tyler Act after the stars testified. The bill would give people power to sue others who take photos or video of their private lives in an offensive way. (AP Photo/Oskar Garcia)
