Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) said privacy protections need to be in place before Amazon starts delivering packages with drones.

Markey noted that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is considering expanding the commercial use of drones, but said privacy worries must be met first.

"Before drones start delivering packages, we need the FAA to deliver privacy protections for the American public," he said in a statement."Convenience should never trump constitutional protections," Markey continued. "Before our skies teem with commercial drones, clear rules must be set that protect the privacy and safety of the public."
