"privacy is dead, get over it" [scott McNealy 1999]

Not nice, but in both Orwell's 1948 and Lucas' THX-1138 there were cameras everywhere, and the consequences in both cases were rather more severe than just being kicked of a video game. So there was plenty of prior warning. And in many places today the consequences of ubiquitous cameras are still much worse.
