Privacy fears: Panel has advice for drone operators
A panel organized by the Obama administration has released guidelines for using drones, both commercially and recreationally. The News Media Coalition, which includes nearly two dozen of the country’s leading news media organizations, has been involved in the process of drafting these recommendations. During the process, news outlets won an exemption from the guidelines.
Attorney Joel Roberson, who represents the coalition, said the outcome "will ensure that news-reporting organizations have a First Amendment right to gather the news through drones in the national airspace."
