Why not just issue titles of nobility?

From the Boston Herald comes news of an intriguing proposal dubbed the "Britney law":

L.A. councilman Dennis Zine is urging a proposal in the wake of the pop star’s latest psychiatric emergency that would implement a 20-yard “personal safety zone” around celebrities after Spears’ ambulance had to be surrounded by police cars and helicopters late last month to prevent the paparazzi from snapping photos of the singer en route to the hospital. ...

The tentatively termed “Britney Law” would have the right to confiscate all profits from any photograph taken without signed consent within the bubble of safety around any celebrity.

Special rights for special people? I wonder what the equal protection clause might say about that? Or the First Amendment?

Titles of nobility are unconstitutional as well. Not that cops care, they already consider themselves noble.
