If you Google "Cell Phone Camera Sound Law", you'll find lots of articles on the new proposed law.
Yeah, but that is an act that is "coming". Blackberry has always had that shutter noise ever since they started putting cameras on their phones. So they didn't make it so you can disable the noise because it is illegal. It's not, and I can't see why people keep saying it is. That act is coming because right now .... Turning off shutter noise is legal and always has been.
