I'm going to say at the outset I've done something stupid. Really stupid. We all have from time to time. There's something about serving as a warning to others. Don't do what I did. Of course, like many frustrating situations, you don't know what you've done until after the fact. As was in my case.

Technology is always ahead of the legal aspects. Engineers ask the question, "Can I?" Lawyers and other stakeholders ask, "What does this mean?"

The governments say they want it too, but just as long as they have their own back door. As soon as one is created then the system fails because a hack into the system has been purposefully created. So true it'll be with facial recognition.
