Proposed UK law charts a familiar path

The proposed regulations are similar to drone regulations that have been enacted in the U.S., but more stringent. The FAA enacted and enforced drone registration until the U.S. Court of Appeals  declared it unlawful earlier this year. “Fundamentally, this looks like regulations in the U.K. are developing more or less in parallel with the U.S., except that an act of Congress prohibits regulation of hobby drones,” says Brant Hadaway, partner with the Diaz, Reus law firm where he established an Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) practice.
