Not a joke.. a bill was actually introduced into congress to require cell phones to make a "shutter click sound" since they are silent:

H.R. 414: Official Summary 1/9/2009--Introduced.Camera Phone Predator Alert Act - Requires any mobile phone containing a digital camera to sound a tone whenever a photograph is taken with the camera's phone. Prohibits such a phone from being equipped with a means of disabling or silencing the tone. Treats the requirement as a consumer product safety standard and requires enforcement by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

It is already a law in South Korea..

Good thing it didn't pass.  It would've been such a pointless law.
