Neal Kirk (R) in the New Hampshire House has proposed banning all aerial photography in the state .. unless you are the government.
A person is guilty of a class A misdemeanor if such person knowingly creates or assists in creating an image of the exterior of any residential dwelling in this state where such image is created by or with the assistance of a satellite, drone, or any device that is not supported by the ground. This prohibition shall not apply where the image does not reveal forms identifiable as human beings or man-made objects. In this paragraph, “dwelling” means any building, structure, or portion thereof which is occupied as, or designed or intended for occupancy as, a residence by one or more individuals.
Not surprisingly the effort has been amended. It will be very interesting seeing how this society and technology issue plays out .. there are clearly Google Glass issues here. A question is how quickly this sort of thing get assimilated before people start asking serious questions and if there are trigger points that change the tolerance level long enough for it to become established. Pre-IRA and 9/11 no one would have predicted public tolerance of wide spread surveillance cameras and the TSA. Likewise people we seem to believe privacy is important, but Facebook is a counterexample...
