With funding from the MPAA, the Los Angeles Police Dept. is installing surveillance cameras intended to catch sellers of pirated DVDs. Four cameras on buildings in Los Angeles' downtown fashion district are already operational, with six more scheduled to be installed in coming weeks, according to Police Chief William Bratton. The department reportedly hopes to expand the system if it is successful.

To catch illegal DVD trafficers, huh? How convenient that the cameras can also be used for any other desired surveillance application - in perpetuity into the future.

Exactly! How is this not Big Brother? BoingBoing caught onto this and has an excellent entry with lots of links about this story. This definitely deserves more attention.
