Not surprisingly, the law has not caught up to the technology.
In 2013, the Congressional Research Service, a legislative branch agency within the Library of Congress that provides analysis to Congress, published a report, “Integration of Drones Into Domestic Airspace: Selected Legal Issues,” that warned of the various ways in which drones could be used for “stalking, harassment, voyeurism and wiretapping.”
But the report also noted that “determining whether a drone in flight is trespassing upon one’s property may be unusually challenging.”
Perhaps a 12guage with a silencer on it would solve the problem...I don't even know if there is such a thing, but I bet it wouldn't be hard to build one...
What is really scary is when these things get too close to an Airport.
Just think how easy it would be for a Terrorist to bring down an airliner with one of these. I understand the ones being built now, at least the bigger ones, have a built in safe guard that won’t allow the motors to run when it is near an airport. But ANY safeguard can hacked or overridden.
