it seems this thing is like credit data. companies give up the data in exchange for a credit score and risk profiling
same here. seems like private companies will be giving up their security cam and other data in exchange for security services
I like the use of "conspiracy" and "alleged" in the top-level story. It gives this a real air of critical reporting. You know! Like the conspiracy story about your parent's families, in which your father is alleged to have impregnated your mother.
There's real room to reserve some skepticism around the entire business of these "stories".
