Here is a little bit more I found about the system
People pay £12.99 a year or £4.99 a quarter and for that they can log on and watch two shops at a time. You don't get to choose which shops you
watch and you cannot watch any shops in your postcode area.
"If someone is seen shoplifting the viewer presses an alert button that sounds a warning on the shop owner's mobile phone. He can then confront
whoever is pictured. He will have a picture grab sent to him as well."
A reward of £1000 pounds per month for
the Viewer who has made the best contribution
to the prevention or detection of a crime.
A usage reward for time spent helping
the community by monitoring live CCTV footage
A reward for recommending a friend
Recognition for successful feedback
Soon I feel it may become a big community, obviously there should be privacy concerns though it is good you cant choose the shops, nothing is stopping
you recording the feeds and there are a lot of sick people out there who may get the kicks from spying on people.
A bit more I found opposed to the notion
Daniel Hamilton, of campaign group Big Brother Watch, said: "It's astonishing to think that innocent people doing their shopping could soon be
spied on by an army of busybodies with an internet connection.
"CCTV should be used sparingly to help solve real crimes, not to encourage this tawdry voyeurism."
Charles Farrier, director of the pressure group No CCTV, said: "It is an appalling idea for a game and will create a snoopers' paradise.
"It is something which should be nipped in the bud."
