Anti-peeping-tom drone law nixed in California


Re: You don't own the air above your ground

that fancy new privacy-protecting invention called CURTAINS is still mostly unknown leaving the general populace woefully defenceless in their own home against anyone with a pair of eyeballs...

True, especially seeing as in some places you can find yourself on the nasty end of a lawsuit for doing -on your own land- things that are not deemed proper for public view., if it's visible from outside your property.

A few "incitation" lawsuits in Canada spring to mind (for smoking), as well as the ever-successful "indecency" thing across the Western world.

Try as you may, if whatever you're doing is deemed improper, you better do it out of the view of peeping neigbours. The solution may involve curtains. That's not always entirely fair. Or ever at all.
