A man makes a living videotaping extensive interviews with nursing home residents, then selling them to the survivors for a high sum of money when the subject dies. If the survivors balk, he tells them he is running low on disk space and will have to erase the recording if they don't want it. Is this Jewishly ethical or an excellent idea? The interviews are not commissioned by anybody, but the subjects are eager to talk and tell their stories.
(This is a subplot of the Israeli serial Shtisel, now showing on Netflix.)
