Drones get legal support
Although only five months young, dronologista blog has grown and needs a new attire.
As of 1st of September, dronologista.com moves to a new hosting, new address and slightly changes the appearance . Content will remain the same, and dronologista will continue to provide information about non-military drones only.
It is no news that the technology used in unmanned aircraft systems is rapidly evolving. Unfortunately, it seems that lawmakers are not that quick to follow, and their response to this phenomenon is not constructive, to put it mildly. More often than not, commercial drone operators were helpless when facing prosecution.
That is about to change. Husch Blackwell, a litigation and business law firm with offices in US and United Kingdom, has introduced its unmanned aerial systems (UAS) group, which will assist commercial business users and manufacturers in navigating the requirements for UAS and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
The multi-disciplinary team, led by Tom Gemmel a former fighter pilot, consists of attorneys with a broad range of regulatory, technical and hands-on experience and specialize in the practices that matter most in this growing industry. One of the team members is a military intelligence officer who has experience with UAS information collection and analysis as well as development of UAS intelligence products.
This smart move will most probably establish Husch Blackwell as the top legal provider for drone operators at odds with authorities. Knowing how FAA randomly prosecutes “offenders”, this law firm will get a lot of new clients quickly.
Among them will most certainly not be the Archdiocese of Washington D.C, since their drones are not affected by earthly laws.
