Digital shoplifting: Did ya see it?

Apparently, digital shoplifting is on the rise in Japan, home of many camera phones. Apparently, Japanese are photographing books, movie times, fashion displays, etc and exchanging the images.
Said one woman, ” But I have taken pictures of a hair-style catalogue to show to a hairdresser as the whole catalogue book was heavy… I also photograph clothes to consult friends about what to buy… or to tell them: This is the dress I’m planning to wear for the wedding party.”
Wow! Can’t wait till this new behavior comes to the US. Mobblogging is fascinating enough…
Latest from Joi Ito: Mobblogging banned in Japanese bookstores.
