In recent years, due to the emerging technology in the field of Unmanned Aviation Systems “Drones”, the laws of drones have come to the foreground of legal analysis. Since 2012, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has set out various guidelines for numerous aspects of drone usage and ownership.

This article will focus on the laws and regulations associated with personal drone usage, and the legal impact of a recent federal case, Boggs v. Merideth.
