Are other camera makers doing this so you can use 3rd party batteries?


This to me seems illegal as you should have the choice like you do with a
car.

Cameras will not work if you use 3rd party batteries, ie None Panasonic ones..

"Panasonic has released firmware updates for its latest digital cameras
including the GH1, G1, ZS3 and TS1. The new firmware can identify genuine
Panasonic batteries and prevents the use of any third party battery packs. The
company says it has taken this move to ensure safety of its users against
possible injuries because of overcharging, internal heating or short circuit
in third-party batteries. "

Was this ever actually implemented, there is very little info available via the usual search options to confirm it with most results actually refuting it. There are also loads of TP batteries for sale on the likes of eBay with no adverse feedback from buyers saying they didn't work.
