Google Glass gets banned by MPAA and National Association of Theatre owners

Google GlassWashington, Oct 31 : Motion Picture Association of America and the National Association of Theatre Owners have banned wearable technologies, such as Google Glass.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, moviegoers must turn off and put away any and all such devices, or risk being asked to leave and if theater staff suspects that illegal recording is taking place, law enforcement authorities will be notified.

Officials with the MPAA and NATO approved the new rule during a meeting at ShowEast, the annual fall gathering of theater owners in Hollywood, Fla, while many theater owners already have a zero-tolerance policy against wearable devices, but on an individual basis. (ANI)
