Free licensing of surveillance software

My great and good friends,

Has there been work on a software license that would require
the subjects of surveillance to have access to the source code
of surveillance software? AGPL accomplishes this only when the
surveillance happens directly in a website.

It would be good for the surveillance software source code to be
distributed because it would show what surveillance methods are being
used. The software of interest could be as innocent as button widgets
for user interfaces, as they could be used to create the user interface
for surveillance camera monitoring software.
I imagine that a well funded surveillance project would choose the
alternative of writing a proprietary clone, but at least that would make
the surveillance a little more expensive.

With great humility,
