In the USA's more moderately sized cities, the average person is photographed at least 20 times per day and usually without the person knowing it.

Imagine the size of the databases that must be scattered around. This begs the question that I've often poised...Who's watching the watchers?!  scratch-head

I don't know how it works in the US but under the data protection act in the UK you are entitled to go into any shop that you have been in and request that they show you any images they have of you and to have the film redacted to blank out your face.

I found this out on a good course on data protection I did here in Ireland, the guy who took the course took the Liffey Valley shopping centre in Dublin to the Irish data commissioner when they refused his request to view the camera footage they had of him on a trip to the centre.

To the best of my knowledge, there's nothing like that here. In fact, due to the sweeping authority and power granted the government through the "Patriot Act", if someone even tried to make a request like that, surveillance on that person would likely increase exponentially. Shocked
