(CNN) – A French court has leveled fines and penalties on the French Magazine ‘Closer’ for publishing topless photos of the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.
However, a former bodyguard says it doesn't do enough to curb bad paparazzi behavior.

Burke, who worked as security for many high-profile celebrities, founded The Paparazzi Reform Initiative and is responsible for helping to enact several paparazzi laws.
He says that what happened to the royal couple while vacationing at a private chateau in France is inexcusable.
In cities like Los Angeles where celebrities are in abundance, he worries about the dangerous situations paparazzi cause.

Burke said the paparazzi will do and say anything to get the photo that gets them paid.
