Drones - small, light, highly-developed cameras that are controlled via remotes. The development of drones are reaching new heights. It's imminent mass production sparks controversy over the drone's effect on the Constitutional privacy of United States citizens & that of citizens around the world.
The most advanced drones available to the public (granted, it's publicity is still pretty low among the masses) can even be controlled via smart phone. Imagine flying a small camera in a hundred feet radius and watching its course through a smart-phone screen?
Taking pictures and recording videos are only some of the many potential functions of drones. The US military's development & practice of drone warfare has met many landmarks in the past decade.
Enough about that..
What I really want to know is what DDO (anyone who cares to respond) thinks about drone technology and its potential threat to our privacy... we could easily have drones create an environment in which no person could move anywhere without having a camera literally hovering above his head, creepy stalkers could safely spy on their victims all day without being in vicinity, it's just scary.
1. verify the existence of a threat
2. Propose solutions, can it be regulatd?
3. decide whether drones should be introduced to the market; should it be available to consumers?

Have you heard of this place called london? Over four hundred thousand cctv cameras. There is no such thing as privacy there. Drones aren't that big a deal, privacy is never as private as you think it is, and it's not like those things are going to be peaking in our windows. Unless they aren't government drones, in which case I believe you have worse things to worry about then your privacy.

This is the response of the defenders of Sparta to the Commander of the Roman Army: "If you are a god, you will not hurt those who have never injured you. If you are a man, advance - you will find men equal to yourself. And women.

The only place you truly have/should have privacy is in your own home.

It's creepy. It think there will be a market for automatic high-powered tennis rackets to swat the things. Regulations to preserve privacy is certain. No one wants drones peeping into windows, so their will be laws. However, it's going to be hard to enforce.

See "US Air Force Develop Insect-Like Drones For Covert &Targeted Operations" http://occupycorporatism.com...

Drones may have positive uses for delivering mail and packages, for those who can't wait for FedEx. And pizza delivery.

The difference: the government actually has a viable excuse for such surveillance (protecting the peace and such). Consumers present a different set of scenarios. You'd have average people going around doing what the government already has to constantly justify. Potential public menaces may be able to employ drone technology to less moral means. This transcends privacy.
