free camera/tv in exchange for surveillance.
(+2, -2)
  [vote for,

The FBI or other LEAs can give away a free cable TV plus cable-modem subscription in exchange for a camera permanently installed on top of the TV. People who cannot afford cable service or internet service can thus trade their privacy for such service. Additional subscriptions/TVs/premium channels may be offered for cameras in bedrooms or bathrooms.

       I do all my drug smuggling, child pornography, and terrorist plotting from my bedroom, so, hey, sign me up.

       Surveilance cameras would be more popular if the outputs were part of a Google type library so we could peek at each other. Why should the FBI have all the fun?
