At the Federal Trade Commission's workshop on drones yesterday, industry, academics and advocates hashed it out over whether drones should be regulated differently from other technologies. Industry argued it's already mitigating privacy risks. Advocates argued there should be more transparency. But some of the complications, both sides agreed, include that it's not always easy for the public to tell who's actually watching them on a remotely operated drone and that notice and choice can be difficult given drones' unique, aerial nature. In this episode of the podcast, Electronic Privacy Information Center's Jeramie Scott and Margot Kaminski of Ohio State University's Moritz College of Law discuss whether notice and choice is actually possible with drones, why drones may or may not be different from other data-collection technologies, and what the term "internet of other people's things" means.
