After years of technological experimentation and legal ambiguity, civilian drones are now going mainstream. The new regulatory environment created by the latest FAA decision will substantially change the way we create journalistic content. In this session, panelists will answer questions about the emerging legal and regulatory framework governing drone journalism both domestically and internationally, as well as discuss where the technology is headed and how it can be leveraged for journalism.
