How Not to Land You & Your Drone in Hot Water


Drones are hot gift items, but they also have practical uses such as land surveying, law enforcement, and film production.

Attorneys Jennifer Lee and Franz Borghardt will discuss drones/UAVs and legal implications associated with their recreational and commercial uses.
