Drones or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) are becoming a part of everyday life with their recreation, professional, and military use.  Determining how it affects the business world is becoming a more commonly asked question.  What is your recourse if a drone is being used to spy on your business or publish private and personal pictures of you or your property?   Alternatively, maybe you are considering using drones as part of your business model.  Understanding where the law stands on when and how drones can be used and the consequences of their improper use will help you protect yourself and your business.
