Drone laws are still in their infancy, getting sorted out and passed back and fourth between the courts and government on a state-by-state basis. So what does that mean for you?
Where can you fly these drones? Where do you go to register them? And what if a drone is acting like a peeping Tom in your backyard? How can you stop it? Can you shoot it down?
While there's no official law yet, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is making their message loud and clear: Shoot down and drone and face up to 20 years in prison.
At least, that's what they want you to think. Just earlier this year, a man named William Merideth in Kentucky shot down a drone that was flying in his backyard and a judge found him justified in doing so. Merideth didn't face any jail time, nor did he have to pay any fines, and his case was dismissed.
While drone laws aren't anywhere near being completed, in the meantime if you have questions regarding your drone, contact your local authorities and ask them for the local guidelines and restrictions.
