Ask your lawyer about "Expectation of Privacy." Hidden camera shows are for-profit. They're blurring out the people due them not being contractually affiliated with the show (paid extra, staff, whatever). It's generally not to protect the people, but to prevent the network from paying people. At the end of the day...one walking one the street/public space has no expectation of privacy and a camera operator can take the footage and do what he/she chooses at no legal consequence. The footage/images are property of the people taking it...period. How do you think that paparazzi get away with as much as they do?
