“Lawsuits and public apprehension over new technology is nothing new. The drone might well be considered a new version of the Kodak Brownie, which in 1884 caused no end of concern when it allowed anyone to take photographs in public places rather than in the seclusion of the studio.”
– Mickey Osterreicher, photojournalist and General Counsel for National Press Photographers Association (NPPA).
