TimBamBam: With the newest rules by the airlines that will required you to removed your camera and other electronics they aree going to make travel photographers jobs a nightmare.

Nonsense. Just get pre Check/Global Entry and be done.

Never underestimate the criminality of any corporation. Never.

arhmatic: What if the drone kills someone on the ground while free falling? Who is responsible?

I'm sure of it. Own a Pit Bull? You may get an exclusion for liability if the dog bites. Or not get insurance at all.

Or you will have to buy a drone rider policy.

It will take a while, and prolly several years before case law is well settled, but it's coming to an insurance agent near you. Just like your Piper Cub.

Satyaa: It is a valid action based on real concerns, as long as they address the grey areas. It will take its time.

Now I also want courts to rule that civilians can confiscate drones flying into their property, for privacy concerns.

The United States Government controls the air space over the United states. Period. That's why the EMS helo can transit over your back yard.

Doubtful that a drone/operator can be trespassing unless you tell them to leave your property - that they were standing on. That's why it isn't a crime for religious prostelizers to knock on your door. If you tell them to leave they must do so, but no crime has been committed.

ncsakany: Both sides took ridiculous positions.

Well, the Supreme Court has ruled that corporations are persons....So maybe...
I'll believe corporations are persons when Texas executes the first one.

Impulses: What are the odds they pay out the damages? I'm surprised the trial only took a week after they spent so long trashing the photog (or maybe because they did?), you would've thought they'd have an attorney ready to drag it out.

Not necessarily. 2 1/2 years isn't excessive in civil court, depending on the jurisdiction of the court. It's all about the docket and the number of trial judges, and whether parties settle enough to move the docket forward.

stefpix: The terrorists now will all apply for the TSA precheck. The others will wait in line, while some cameras will be "lost" or accidentally fall off the tray.

What are the TSA provisions if expensive electronics are stolen or damaged while the owner is being body scanned at a security checkpoint?

You aren
't SOL if TSA damages your equipment. You simply file a claim. Just like you would if the taxi driver dropped your case. Geez.

Here's a thought: Just get PreCheck/Global Entry, get the chip off your shoulder and act like a normal person. Works every time.

davev8: 1ST ...probably a good idea especially round airports

Perhaps, but hacking is against the law. And just wait until some doofus puts a drone into a multi million dollar turbofan !

Then there's the doofus that but the bed on the RR tracks after CSX told them twice to stay off the property. One died, others injured - typical of those who don't believe that rules apply to them. Fortunately, he went to jail.

Rules are made for the benefit of society at large, not to take your toy away.

Drone pilots need to take care that they aren't seen as a bunch of over entitled tweeps. Then you'll really see the body politic engage.

Argumentum ad absurdum. Geez.
But actually I'd like to have bicycle riders licensed and actually required to obey the rules of the road.

To drive a car, I need a license. To fly an airplane, I need a license. To get either or both, I must demonstrate that I know the rules and how to properly operate the equipment in an atmosphere with similar devices.

Why should drones be given special treatment?

It's not REALLY about security, it's about jerks and other assorted doofuses.

jannefoo: All the phone operating systems at this point are just a gigantic data mining operations. It's a shame really, the end user doesn't have any say in their operating system or software anymore.

Don Diafragma: WOW! Another Sony Story....

DPR says they are independent press, but sometimes I unfortunately get the feeling they are an extension of the Sony PR machine.

As we say here in Texas, "Some folks would complain if they were gonna be hung with a new rope."

This photograph is a two dimensional representation of a three dimensional object. It isn't 'real', it is a representation of reality. What's the big deal ?
