FAA has been working on rules for drone use. Now the MPAA on behalf of film and TV productions is requesting exemption for use of drones to film scenes, etc.

Drone flying over celebrating fans after Kings won the Stanley Cup brought down by a t-shirt. Confiscated by LAPD (as "found property"). LAPD denied rumor it was one of theirs.
