Description

Drone policy is fast evolving, and the U.S. legal system is ill-equipped to address privacy concerns. A number of U.S. states have enacted drone-specific privacy laws. Meanwhile, the NTIA is engaging in a multistakeholder process, and federal legislation has been proposed. Are privacy laws necessary—or do they impinge on the free speech rights of drone videographers? This policy question is not unique to drones; it will be raised by a host of coming technologies.
