The rapid proliferation of unmanned aerial systems (UAS), commonly known as “drones,” has given rise to considerable public concern about privacy and unwelcome surveillance. This paper considers the effectiveness of existing New Zealand privacy torts and privacy legislation in addressing the privacy issues raised by UAS. This article considers practical issues with enforcement and concludes with suggested clarifications to the privacy regulatory framework.
