California lawmakers advanced legislation Monday seeking to rein in the use of privacy-invading drones, passing one bill to prevent the use of drones by paparazzi and another making it a trespassing violation to fly drones over private property without permission.

It’s a step that needs to be done.  With modern technology, we are losing our privacy at an alarming rate.  There needs to be checks and balances put in place so that privacy can still be maintained.

Why do people need to be flying drones over people’s houses and around neighborhoods? There’s no need for that. Especially when they’re equipped with cameras.

This law is a great step toward preserving people’s individual privacy.
