I kind of agree with Block on this...

What he is essentially saying is: if you are surrounded by walls on your own property, you have now earned the "right to privacy" though the acquisition of property. (I use the terms "right to privacy" loosely, because, it really isn't a right as much as a benefit of property ownership.)

If people build devices that can see through your walls, you are free to build a device that blocks their device and so on.

Fortunately though, the SCOTUS ruled that these types of technologies do violate our reasonable expectation of privacy. I can't remember the case, but it had to do with infrared technology being used by helicopters to spot indoor marijuana grow houses.
