Are people clear about this though?
[…] Smart spyware would try to convince you to give it all your photos right up front. That way it wouldn’t be limited to preconceived models or be at risk of removal or restriction.

That’s the way Google, Facebook, Instagram, and similar photo services that run targeted ads against those services already work.
