Although I am generally quite positive on the use of drones for targeted killing and such uses of forces abroad, I also think their use domestically raises many crucial privacy and other issues. While many of those domestic use issues are about privacy, in some instances the issue is privacy in relation to a government use of drones while in others the question is the use of drones by private parties in relation to other private parties. Drones are going to increase in their use and presence in many, many different ways – at all sizes and with many sensor configurations. Not to get back to April Fools or anything, but to judge by the enthusiasm for drones among hobbyists in California, I believe it will be legal requirement to live there that you have your own drone.
