Professor Reidenberg Discusses Domestic Use of Civilian Drones

Submitted by on May 7 – 2013No Comment

Professor Joel Reidenberg appeared on CBS New York last week to discuss the use of domestic drones. Any civilian can purchase a weaponless drone, which can have high-definition cameras and GPS devices, raising serious privacy concerns.

Reidenberg said “The unregulated use of private drones has a lot of creepy aspects to it.” He also said the law hasn’t caught up with technology in terms of protecting individuals from a serious invasion of privacy.

Legally, for private individuals today, it’s a free for all…There really isn’t much privacy law that would work to protect individuals from others spying on them.
