Amazon’s MGM using Ring doorbell video surveillance in Film

There’s a petition campaign against it from Daily Kos:

Amazon’s MGM Studios are taking advantage of surveillance footage from Ring cameras for a new reality TV show. The show will feature footage entirely from Amazon’s Ring system and is a blatant attempt to normalize Amazon’s shady surveillance tactics by making those tactics appear “family friendly.”

Sign the petition to MGM: Cancel Ring Nation.

SIGN THE PETITION

Millions of people— including users, their families, and casual bystanders—are surveilled daily by Ring cameras. Our whereabouts are tracked. The things we do and say are recorded. This amassed data can be–and has been–shared with local police departments and their partners in government agencies. It’s important to recognize such devices for the surveillance power they have.

It’s irresponsible for MGM to promote dangerous surveillance devices, like Ring, as family-friendly entertainment. Ring is not safe for families or anyone else. By canceling Ring Nation, you will help protect our privacy and show solidarity for Black and brown people and abortion seekers, people most threatened by over-surveillance.
