About This Title

Drones have garnered recent global headlines, yet these unmanned aircraft (UA), also known as unmanned aircraft vehicles (UAVs), have been around since 1849. In addition to military use, drones are used for consumer or commercial purposes, by local police departments and government agencies, and by corporations. Not to mention there are the “unsavory” uses of drones—tracking people, closing down facilities, and even assassination.

The guide covers all aspects of operators and users, including the hobbyist, commercial operator, military drone user, and law enforcement. Explore easy-to-access primary and secondary resources such as newspaper articles, magazine pieces, law review articles, and more. This legal research guide aides the legal community of students, lawyers, and any citizen researching all matters encompassing drones.
