If Congress were consistent, and if they had treated "Video Voyeurism"
the same way they reacted to the "Assault of Non-Solicited Pornography
and Marketing" back in '03, they would have:

1. Asserted the rights of US voyeurs to capture images of anyone's
    "naked or undergarment clad genitals, pubic area, buttocks, or
    female breast", at least once;
2. Required US voyeurs to notify those unsuspecting persons whose
    images they've captured, and provide an opt-out address for
    subsequent intrusions;
3. Provided civil penalties for any US voyeur who fails to notify the
    subject, or subsequently captures an image of the subject after
    the subject has opted out;
4. Provided criminal penalties for anyone who drills more than 25 holes
    in ceilings, walls, floors, or other partitions during any month
    in order to capture such images.

I would then expect Senator Schumer to leap into the fray with an
amendment requiring the FTC to manage a "Do Not Capture Images of
My Naked or Undergarment Clad Genitals, Pubic Area, Buttocks, or
Female Breast List".
