Homeowner Installs Surveillance Cameras Specifically To Charge For Access To Footage

STORY HERE

SUMMARY:

Town in KY builds roundabout at intersection.

Dude who lives next to new roundabout puts up a pole with 2 cameras overlooking entire intersection and thinks he's going to make some money by charging people (lawyers, insurance investigators, drivers, etc) for footage of mishaps in the roundabout.

Questions:

  • Will this scheme work?
  • Would you pay this guy for footage if you needed it?
  • Could the guy be served a subpeona and be compelled to give up the footage?
  • Does the fact that his surveillance camera's FOVs are covering a public space have any bearing on determining if he can be compelled to give up the footage?
