Gregory S. McNeal, Associate Professor of Law and Public Policy at Pepperdine School of Law, discusses some property rights questions that are associated with drone use. Do property owners own the air above their property? Can they destroy a drone that flies onto their property? How should disputes between property owners and drone users be settled?
As always, the Federalist Society takes no position on particular legal or public policy issues; all expressions of opinion are those of the speaker.
