LiveWeb > phone to motor to phone to phone

This week’s iteration involved designing a shoulder harness and adapter for my phone. The whole thing is wireless and runs off a 3.7V liPo boosted up to 5V. 

The master camera uses webRTC to stream video back to all clients through a remote server while the master client (the most recently connected client) controls the rotation of the motor.

The result is an internet controlled wearable surveillance camera.

What would happen when a journalist is equipped with a camera controlled by the crowd?
What happens when the subject of the camera is aware that they are being live broadcasted to hundreds or thousands?
What would happen when a police officer is equipped with a camera controlled by citizens?
When the feed is broadcasted, who claims ownership?
And who gets to claim control?
