These Drones Are Made For Watchin’
L’EFF lance une opération de documentation des drones de surveillance.
EFF recently received a trove of documents from the FAA in response to our Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, offering new insights into the public and private use of drones in the United States—including where they’re flying, why they’re being used, and what their capabilities are. These new documents include the never-before-released Special Airworthiness Certificates (SACs) from all private companies authorized to fly drones (list available here).
Here are a few things we’ve discovered so far in our review of the material.
The FAA documents we received mainly address saftey issues with drone flights, but there are still many unanswered questions about the privacy implications of drones. EFF is asking the Internet community to help us push for more transparency around the use of drones for domestic surveillance.
C’est la suite de l’appel à documentation de l’utilisation des drones pour la surveillance privée et publique aux US, lancé conjointement par l’EFF et Muckrock, début juillet.
EFF and MuckRock Partner Up to See How Your Local Police Are Using Drones
EFF is proud to announce that MuckRock, an open government organization dedicated to helping people send requests for public records, is joining our campaign to find out what local police agencies are doing with drones — and how we can stop their use for surveillance. We are sending out public records requests to every local law enforcement agency with a drone authorization from the FAA. In addition, MuckRock is offering their tools and inviting users to help write their own public records requests to police agencies in their town.
