FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018

Law:

Pub. L. No. 115-254,132 Stat.3314, codified in relevant part at 49 U.S.C. § 44801 note

Under Section 375 of the Act, it is an unfair and deceptive practice under FTC Act § 5(a) for a person that uses an unmanned aircraft system (i.e. a drone and its operational elements) for commercial purposes in the national airspace system to violate a privacy policy. The Act does not require such persons to have privacy policies, though it states the “sense of Congress” that such persons should have a written privacy policy that respects and protects personal privacy consistent with the Constitution and applicable laws.
