Drones have burst onto the scene by the millions in the last three years.  They are utilized by hobbyists for recreational use, by business owners for commercial purposes, and by the government in law enforcement.  Regulatory, safety, and privacy concerns have prompted this comprehensive look at the law governing this new technology.  Includes discussion of:

  • New FAA Rules regulating the use of drones
  • Constitutional concerns surrounding police use of drones
  • Tort remedies when drones are used to invade your privacy
  • Insurance coverage of drone activity
  • Much more!
