EPIC Supports Drone Registration Proposal

In comments to the FAA, EPIC urged the agency to require all drone operators to register in a federal drone registry. An FAA task force, lacking any privacy experts, is developing a plan for a national registry. EPIC said registration is critical for public safety and privacy protection. EPIC recommended that the FAA require drones to broadcast identification information and that the registration database detail a drone's surveillance capabilities. EPIC also urged the agency to provide privacy protections for the personal information of hobbyists. Earlier this year, EPIC sued the FAA for failing to establish privacy rules for commercial drones as mandated by Congress.
