Anti-peeping-tom drone law nixed in California

Friday, September 11, 2015

A law proposed in California that would have banned drones from flying below 350ft over private property without permission has been vetoed by the state's governor.

Gov Jerry Brown reckoned the rule would "could expose the occasional hobbyist and the FAA-approved commercial user alike to burdensome litigation." In other words, it was too easy to break accidentally.
