    haha so a 15 year old hobbyist's captured drone video can't be sold to and used by an event promoter unless that kid has a license?

    Or can it, as he was only a hobbyist at the time and sold footage later? Hmm

    The latter.

    An adult cannot charge a penny for flying a drone without breaking the law, but an 8-year-old can take some video and along comes Stephen Spielburg with a check for $10,000,000 'cuz he likes what he saw on YouBoob and wants to use the footage in a movie.

    This is a big win. Requiring a pilot's license to legally make money off what it is essentially an art form made absolutely no sense...
