It's The Law.
Can Anyone Take or Use Commercial Aerials Of Any Type Produced For Them By Any Non-FCC Licensed Photographer Legally?
A drone with a High Definition Camera mounted to it can create some
very stunning visuals in the form of Videos and Photos. I don’t think
anyone would dispute this fact, but there’s a problem and it’s a legal
one. Right now it’s illegal to use any video or photos produced from a
drone in a commercial application without the proper licensing and
authorizations from the FAA.
Example: A real estate agent using a drone for creating photos and virtual
tours would be in violation of the law if they did not comply with the
current set of FAA Regulations in place.
To take or use any aerial images or video you must use an FCC Section 333 licensed provider to take those images or videos. Failure to do so can result in fines of up to $10,000 for each photo or video taken.
