Beyond such private uses, it is also easy to see how drones will contribute to the public good – whether scanning for forest fires or tracking poachers in Africa, there is tremendous untapped potential for drones to protect lives and property. In order for these potential benefits to materialize, however, innovators and entrepreneurs need space. Unfortunately, when it comes to drones (and so many other new technologies), regulators seem reluctant to provide the needed leeway."
