One difference is that near 100% visual memory conversion to long term
memory doesn't really exist. I know you see these guys on TV that
glance at a newspaper and can recite it verbatum, but these stunts
never stand up to skeptical scrutiny. People really don't have
photographic images for text and data. They might have good spacial
imaging for colors and positions, but not to read a lot of text in an

I doubt it. But there will be a limit on whose data you can access and
record if they don't give you permission.

Or otherwise? Meaning deliberate acquisition of data that does not
belong to the acquirer is to be allowed?
I think any deliberate attempt to collect data illegally will stay
illegal. It usually is the intent of a crime that defines it. An
accidental capture of data would probably be OK. The deliberate
attempt to capture other people's credit card numbers and passwords, or
the deliberate recording of material in a bookstore so you can walk out
with it without paying for it will be kept illegal. These laws already
exist today and will continue to exist in the face of new technology.
