Israel requires a warning label on models made skinny with Photoshop!

Israel passed a law yesterday banning the employment of "underweight" models in advertising, and requiring publications to disclose when they've used Photoshop to make people look thinner in pictures.

Models are now required to get a doctor to state that their body mass index is at least 18.5 before they're allowed to pose for photos professionally.

The laws are intended to slow with the rise of anorexia and bulimia, especially among young girls.

Is this too heavy handed, or should other governments follow Israel's example?

Unfortunately, this increase will mean a substantial increase in patent prosecution costs. RCEs are extremely useful tools. This article accurately sums up the situation.
