U.S. cinema chain bans Google Glass over piracy concerns

Drafthouse Cinemas, which has 20 sites across the United States, said users of the devices would not be allowed to use them while watching films. Google Glass is feared because the wearable glasses can be used to surreptitiously record video.

Just this January the FBI dragged a man from a movie theater in Columbus, Ohio, after theater staff presumed his wearing of Google Glass was a sign that he was engaged in camcorder piracy.


Also in January, a California motorist was cited for wearing Google Glass while driving, but she was cleared months later.

Google Glass has also been banned at restaurants, strip clubs, and other venues like casinos.
