Domestic Drone Regulation for Safety and Privacy | The Volokh ConspiracyThe Volokh Conspiracy

Professor Kenneth Anderson has a post on Volokh on private surveillance showing little appreciation for the First Amendment when it comes to regulation of drones, which is not surprising as Volokh rarely, if ever, has concerns about civil liberties or fundamental rights. Being extremist libertarians, all that matters at Volokh isproperty, so, predictably, Anderson thinks that drones will be a nuisance (surprise) to property owners.  We anticipate him defending police shooting down drones intended to protect the next Occupy Movement.

Here is a link.

Domestic Drone Regulation for Safety and Privacy | The Volokh ConspiracyThe Volokh Conspiracy:

We have asked Professor Anderson to answer a simple question about each of the following private uses of drones to engage in surveillance.  Are they permitted under the First Amendment.

If so, how would you distinguish these uses and any other surveillance.

Don't hold your breath for answer:

BTW, Ms. Barbara Streisand made a frivolous claim that her home could not be subjected to private surveillance, lost, and had to pay attorneys fees.
