France criminalizes some citizen journalism?

Forwarded by a friend, from Info World:

The French Constitutional Council has approved a law that criminalizes the filming or broadcasting of acts of violence by people other than professional journalists. The law could lead to the imprisonment of eyewitnesses who film acts of police violence, or operators of Web sites publishing the images, one French civil liberties group warned on Tuesday.

Most distressing.

France... working on our fourth century of bad ideas.
