Those camera-equipped cell phone may be the latest must-have tech product, with more than 31 million sold in North America last year alone. But the ability of users to snap pictures "on the sly" almost anywhere they go -- and even put images on the Internet -- has prompted a growing number of places to institude a ban on the devices. Several large companies have prohibited employees from taking cam phones into sensitive research and production facilities to prevent corporate espionage. Schools are banning them to halt cheating since students have been nabbed shooting test questions and e-mailing "them" to others. Most gyms have set limits in locker rooms, fearing members could take pictures of people in various states of "undress". Those localized bans, however, do little for anyone in a public area. One popular Website proudly taunts photo shots by cam phones in malls and parking lots. This reminds us that people need to be aware that whatever they do in a public space can be recorded.
