"if this wasn't like a householder objecting to these newfangled aeroplanes flying over"

Flawed analogy. If instead flying over at an enough high altitude - and only that - they would fly continuously over my property with a battery of sensors to gather data about it and everything/everyone inside, and process them to profile me as much as they can, well, I would object a lot.

Maybe these are the same people who would object a lot if paparazzi stationed nearby their properties, or fly over it taking shoots of their private affairs. Time to send some drones around them, I guess, after all the photons you reflect outside your property and in the air are free for everybody to capture, right?
