What is this american obsession with property.
Privacy is someting you can expect, regardless of property. It in fact has nothing to do with property.
Privacy is something you can excpect even in a public place.
Even at the beach. Someone talking a picture of you without permission can not publish that.
Whether you own thy beach or not.

Are you sure about that? We have a local news segment here in silicon valley on channel 4 (nbc?) called people behaving badly, and because he films people in public spaces, he does NOT need you to sign a waiver to use your image on TV, the guy who does the segment held a little ama on the news channel on the weekend where he discussed in length how public pictures are not prohibited by privacy laws.

this included places like crosswalks, front yards, side of the freeway, people in their cars, etc.. i haven't seen any open air place yet that he has had to blur images of people.

a hosting platform for your company's secret patent and financial data, you store it on my servers, i sell it off to your competitors, the company is closed and i go retire... since it's a american corporation i won't be held liable for my subterfuge, worse case i blame it on "hackers".
