Abstract

This paper presents the results of a review of contemporary regulatory controls on the use of Point of View Surveillance technologies under Australian law. Law enforcement agencies have considerable scope to apply them, whereas the rights of individuals are more circumscribed and less clear. Because of the technology's applicability to both sur- and sousveillance, a more balanced regulatory framework is necessary.
