But people who live on higher floors can have a general expectation of privacy, despite their blinds being open.

They can’t when drones are around. In one video — totally by accident — I filmed a room where you can see a couch that someone has been using as a bed, perhaps revealing an illegal housing situation or personal drama; or maybe just a house guest.

It’s a reality that will inform, and limit, my future use of drones. When I use my DSLR, I’m very aware of others’ privacy and never invade that space. That should extend to drone photography too. It will also inform how people live in a world where drones are more common. Blinds will be closed more often. Like a handheld camera, it’s certain someone will use them in an inappropriate way.

Eine FAQ, wie das Fliegen von Drohnen in Deutschland aktuelle geregelt ist, gibt es hier.  Auch Spiegel Online hat die wichtigsten Fragen und Antworten zum Thema Drohnen zusammengetragen.

Dennoch: Patrick Beuth zeigt auf ZEIT ONLINE auf, wo die Knackpunkte der derzeitigen Regelungen liegen.
