If I was some kind of celebrity, I think I'd be more than a little concerned about sites like this. Celebrity sightings are recorded and updated, with their locations being plotted on a map. Presumably, this can help paparazzi, creeps, and fans follow their chosen targets all over the place. Shouldn't this sort of thing be illegal?

    No need to go to California. All those sightings are in New York City.

    Oh well that if that is the case I wont be seeing them.

    Worked in New York for some time. I hate it with a passion.

    There will be a lawsuit against Gawker.com within the next year... I'd bet the farm on it.

    FFS, no it shouldn't be illegal. I don't want to bear the cost of making and upholding such laws and I don't want anybody telling me what I can and can't talk about.

    You have privacy in private places but to get to any private place, you must traverse public spaces. If you want to eliminate public exchange of public information (e.g. photos or accounts of people seen in public, when and where) you're asking for a lot worse than that.
