According to the current legislation, anyone can purchase drones, and even though there's a provisional regulation limiting their use, there are barely any control procedures monitoring operators to prevent a fraudulent use of drones. According to Joaquín Muñoz, 'when a drone is purchased, the operator is not compelled to register his data, therefore monitoring this person would be impossible.' And a fraudulent use would be dangerous not just for people and material assets, but also regarding terrorism.
But if the drone is purchased for professional purposes, then the operator is required to register his data, to pay for civil liability insurance and to be a certified pilot.
Joaquín Muñoz provided his legal insight on the drones market at the Legal Hackers Asturias event held at Circus by Borja.
