UK cinemas are set to ban the use of Google Glass headsets over fears that the gadgets can be used to make pirate copies of Hollywood blockbusters. The Independent has reported.

According to the report, the ability to record people without their knowledge, with the stroke of a finger over the spectacle frame or a voice command, has prompted privacy concerns. And cinemas are alarmed that criminal gangs could use Glass to distribute pirate copies of blockbusters movies – recording in cinemas is the source of more than 90 per cent of all illegally copied films in their release form,

One cinema chain stated that it was going to request wearers of the glass to take of their specs as soon as the lights dim, while another said that Glass would not be allowed into cinema auditoriums completely.
