Google chief urges action to regulate mini-drones

"How would you feel if your neighbour went over and bought a commercial observation drone that they can launch from their backyard. It just flies over your house all day. How would you feel about it?"

...about the same as if Google StreetView, Google Glass, DoubleClick and Adwords Tracking, or other Google technology invaded my privacy, (the "fly over" photos of my backyard are only available now via Google Maps).

Your neighbor likely can't afford a surveillance drone.
Google already provides the needed surveillance to terrorists, stalkers and other bad guys with their street view and high flying overview of your backyard. Heaven knows we wouldn't want to compete with that! So let's make all other surveillance devices illegal. The Empire Strikes again!
