In this video from Warner’s Emerging Media and Technologies Industry Update, attorney Josh Hoebeke discusses the differences between recreational and commercial drone use and the requirements for monetizing photos, video or data from piloting drones. Under federal law, individuals who fly drones are required to hold a certain certificate, also referred to as a commercial license, depending on the purpose of the flight. If you fly a drone for recreational purposes and capture photos or videos, can you sell them without this license? Or, what if you purchase photos, videos or data from an unlicensed drone pilot? Will you face penalties? Josh provides answers to these and other questions surrounding this increasingly popular technology. Click on the link below to learn more about drone legal issues.
