Take a look at today's Dilbert Strip !
I don't think anyone could portray the "ban on mobile phones with camera at work" scenario better :)
Infact, this is one of the reasons why I'm not getting my next best all-in-one-mobile :) I remember reading somewhere that Nokia and other phone manufacturers were pushing hard to actually come up with papers and research on why such bans are a bad idea - of course, their revenue is at stake :)
Doubtess, it's rather unfortunate that such bans have to be in place inspite of kewl technology :) Reasons are pretty "well understood", however I still miss my mobile camera phone (which I'd have otherwise puirchased) :(
Catbert (Evil Director of Human Resources) : reads up a cheat sheet book to hit upon a "brilliant idea".
Catbert : Cell phones with cameras are banned from the workplace.
Asok (the intern) : Why ?
Catbert : We don't want you taking pictures of proprietary information.
Asok : Most of our information is in digital form and can be e-mailed anywhere.
Asok : The rest is on paper that can be copied, scanned or tucked down one's trousers.
Asok : My new cell phone will be rendered useless for no good reason.
Asok : (Very highly agitated) And you aren't even banning regular cameras !!
Catbert : (Taking a photo - with a camera - of highly agitated Asok) This one goes in the scrapbook.
