UK Cinemas ban Google Glas

Hollywood has been fighting piracy for a long time, something that is obviously becoming increasingly difficult in the current digital world.

Google Glas went on sale in the UK recently and the cinemas came out quickly to ban the device as they are afraid Glas users would record movies and distribute them illegally.

A Google spokesperson said:  “We recommend any cinemas concerned about Glass to treat the device as they treat similar devices like mobile phones: simply ask wearers to turn it off before the film starts. Broadly speaking, we also think it’s best to have direct and first-hand experience with Glass before creating policies around it. The fact that Glass is worn above the eyes and the screen lights up whenever it’s activated makes it a fairly lousy device for recording things secretly.”

With general privacy concerns of many people when it comes to Google Glas, we are sure that more places will ban the use of the device.
