Drones in the sky

Journalism using drones appears to be, er, taking off. Well, there are lots of eager young hacks fantasising about realising their boyhood dreams of having their own private eye in the skies, purportedly to capture news ie protests and the like, but more likely for many more rather dodgy uses.  Let’s just say Kate Middleton won’t be chuffed at the prospect. Forget about the risks of knocking real aircraft out of the skies.
Either way, it’s worth having a look at this talk that was given this weekend at the Online News Association’s conference on Drone Journalism. And more on the legal ramifications here, on the Harvard Law and Policy Review blog
