In February 2002, Representative Michael Oxley, R-OH, introduced H.R. 3726, the Video Voyeurism Act of 2002, to amend Title 18 of the U.S. Criminal Code and stop video voyeurism of “any nonconsenting person, in circumstances in which that person has a reasonable expectation of privacy” in the territorial and maritime jurisdictions of the United States. It was sent to the Senate Committee, read twice, and then sent to the Committee on the Judiciary. It eventually lapsed without passage and did not become law.
