Asserting one's property rights in the drone age. Stay tuned; this will get interesting as caselaw develops further. "For now, American law does not recognize the concept of aerial trespass. But as the consumer drone age has taken flight, legal scholars have increasingly wondered about this situation. The best case-law on the issue dates back to 1946, long before inexpensive consumer drones were technically feasible. That year, the Supreme Court ruled in a case known as United States v. Causby that a farmer in North Carolina could assert property rights up to 83 feet in the air." http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2016/08/65-year-old-woman-takes-out-d...
