Kentucky looks to ban UAS recordings over agricultural sites

The Kentucky state House of Representatives has passed a bill that would prohibit drone photography of commercial food production facilities or animal feeding operations.

The bill now moves to the Kentucky state Senate. If passed, the legislation would mean that anyone using an unmanned aerial system (UAS) to record such facilities, without written consent, could be charged with a misdemeanour.

The bill states that anyone who distributes such recordings, be they visual, audio or both, would also be subject to a misdemeanour charge.

Exemptions would include UAS operated by a law enforcement agency or emergency services.
