Prying eyes: Legislature needs to act to preserve privacy from drones

Fairbanks Daily News-Miner editorial: The Alaska Legislature, now that it is in session, needs to take a close look at the privacy issues involved in the world of unmanned aerial vehicles.

UAVs, more commonly referred to as drones, have become more of a topic of concern around the nation as their use outside the U.S. military increases. Most of us came to know about UAVs through their attacks on terrorists in Afghanistan, but a boom is under way in their application on the civilian side.

The Daily News-Miner encourages residents to make themselves heard through the Opinion pages. Readers' letters and columns also appear online at Contact the editor with questions at or call 459-7574.
