    Huge over reaction based on public misconception of the issues. Reports such as the families in the video, clearly center around their perceived invasion of privacy which none of the videos they show as evidence prove. What that evidence shows is flying for fun, which happens in this case to over fly their yard. This is not illegal, nor should it be on an individual basis. Privacy concerns centered around drones are purely something pushed by media and fear mongering when in actual fact it is the misunderstanding of the industry and poor behaviour by the minority of drone operators that is the issue, re-enforced by bad examples on YouTube from big name stars like +CaseyNeistat who not only ignore but blatantly violate regulations and are not prosecuted by authorities.

    In keeping with the old saying, "it’s as good to appear to be doing something as to actually BE doing something (remember the long gun registry) the government has come up with a set of laws designed to placate a vocal few busybodies who view drones as a terror in the skies. A handful of these laws are practical, but most of them are not. If you are close to an aircraft at 9 KM and under the maximum height, the aircraft has NO BUSINESS being at that altitude that far from an airport. The absurdity of these restrictions highlights the fact that these laws were made in panic mode by people with NO practical knowledge of the reality of the hobby of flying quad copters, and the reality of their use. I pity the people tasked with trying to enforce this.

    It’s unfortunate to see this law come into place. I agree that some regulations need to be put in place to keep every pilot responsible. But it seems these laws haven’t been based on facts and reality and quite simply are almost impossible to comply with. The fear of drones has been due to propaganda more than anything else.

    of course this government sees a registry as the best solution for everything.
