This video has recently been doing the rounds, showing a woman apparently assaulting a man for trying to fly a drone over a public beach.
Setting the individuals apart from the incident, there is an important issue here; who is morally right. The man with the drone has every right to use public land in anyway that is not prohibited. Similarly though, other users of the beach have equal right to being concerned about how pictures of them (and their children) utilising public spaces are used.
On the one hand, there is a danger that without thought and a legal framework, we all end up living inside a version of the Truman Show. On the other, cameras bring enormous joy to most of us (and help prevent crime).
About the only thing that's clear today, is that the people in the video do not represent a template for the best way forward.
I’m posting the clip not only as an example of a man/woman-vs.-technology conflict, but also because it raises the question of who should take the lead in resolving disputes over consumer drones.
