It's not often that a newborn baby manages to break the law, as most are concerned with things like eating, sleeping and discovering they have toes. But in California it turns out that according to child labor laws, even those normal baby activities may be cause for legal action if they are caught on camera.

At least, that's the contention of an Associated Press report which claims that the baby documentary 'Babies' may have broken those labor laws in its attempt to capture newborns in their natural habitat. At issue is the fact that director Thomas Balmes filmed kids in the first two weeks of life and for more than 20 minutes a day, which is in violation of California law.
