this bill would also prohibit taking photographs from public roads farms. so jail people who want to expose animal cruelty, jail the photographer of aerial photography of an area where there is a farm, jail people who like to take a country drive and take a picture of a horse running in a field.

I appreciate the logical legal argument of the defamation of a legitimately run business and protect against trespass…but this bill does not reinforce or solidify such an argument. Instead this is yet another manner in which to protect those who subvert our laws/regulations in the name of corporate gains. A more reasonable proposal would come back to the legal idea of “clean hands” doctrine.
CLEAN HANDS DOCTRINE: “a rule of law that a person coming to court with a lawsuit or petition for a court order must be free from unfair conduct (have “clean hands” or not have done anything wrong) in regard to the subject matter of his/her claim. His/her activities not involved in the legal action can be abominable because they are considered irrelevant. As an affirmative defense (positive response) a defendant might claim the plaintiff (party suing him/her) has a “lack of clean hands” or “violates the clean hands doctrine” because the plaintiff has misled the defendant or has done something wrong regarding the matter under consideration. “

Devastating funding cuts to public services ( police, fireman, teachers/schools, emergency services ), subvert the constitution by declaring the authority to replace elected officials by governors’s administrative discretion, higher taxes (1.7) billion ) placed upon the elderly and poor…then these tax funds are used to provide tax breaks (1.8) for corporations and not to correct the state deficits…
