More and more States and private actors are keen on the lucrative space business, not to mention space resources. With ...

Protecting Homeowners' Privacy Rights In The Age Of Drones: The Role Of Community Associations, Hillary B. Farber, Marvin J. Nodiff 2017 University of Massachusetts School of Law - Dartmouth

Protecting Homeowners' Privacy Rights In The Age Of Drones: The Role Of Community Associations, Hillary B. Farber, Marvin J. Nodiff

Faculty Publications

Homeowners' notions of privacy in their dwellings and surroundings are under attack from the threat of pervasive surveillance by small civilian drones equipped with highly sophisticated visual and data-gathering capabilities. Streamlined rules recently issued by the Federal Aviation Administration ("FAA') have unleashed technological innovation that promises great societal benefits. However, the new rules expose homeowners to unwanted snooping because they lack limits on the distance drones may operate from residential dwellings or time of operations. Indeed, our society should not expect a federal agency to deal effectively with the widely diverse issues of drone technology facing the states, given the ...

This article will first examine the nature, scope, and enforceability of contract of carriage provisions involving domestic flights, followed by an examination of cases addressing the enforceability in the United States of a pro-consumer European Union (EU) regulation concerning compensation for flight cancellation, denied boarding, and delay.


The Rise Of The Drones: Framework And Governance— Why Risk It!, Sarah J. Fox Dr 2017 Coventry University

The Rise Of The Drones: Framework And Governance— Why Risk It!, Sarah J. Fox Dr

Journal of Air Law and Commerce

Some seventy-one years ago, it was found that drones could play a role within our society. While the military was quick to realize this and develop the technology, it is only recently that the civilian application is being explored en masse. That said, given this prediction and the military direction, legislators find themselves now unprepared for the civilian use and market potential. However, this is not an unprecedented situation; the civil aviation (manned) market has often shown an inability to work together, be prepared, and cooperate. As a consequence, there has been fragmentation and, arguably, casualties associated with such lethargy ...

Uas: Understanding The Airspace Of States, Stephen Migala 2017 Winston & Strawn LLP

Uas: Understanding The Airspace Of States, Stephen Migala

Journal of Air Law and Commerce

On August 29, 2016, regulations issued by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) went into effect that, for the first time in history, apply only to airspace below 500 feet. At the same time, in response to concerns over privacy and security, and the FAA’s delay in issuing these regulations, several states passed their own laws restricting drones. Simply put, these laws are on a collision course. The majority of commentators believe these state laws will be federally preempted, but they are most likely wrong. Very little attention has been paid to the strong argument that the FAA may not ...


Competition And Subsidies In Air Transport Liberalization— The Uae-North America Dispute, Rachid Tiroual 2017 Southern Methodist University

Competition And Subsidies In Air Transport Liberalization— The Uae-North America Dispute, Rachid Tiroual

Journal of Air Law and Commerce

Subsidy allegations against the three major Middle-Eastern carriers—Emirates Airlines, Etihad Airways, and Qatar Airways—have been brought by the three major U.S. carriers—American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, and United Airlines. The latter claim that the Gulf trio receives letters of credit and subsidies from their governments. They claim also that their rivals take passengers and revenues from U.S. carriers and force them to reduce, terminate, or forego services on international routes. This article rationalizes the ongoing debate without arguing whether the subsidy allegations are founded or not. It seeks to understand the basic rationale behind any ...

The Enemy Among Us: The Insider Threat, Valerie J. Pelton 2017 The George Washington University Law School

The Enemy Among Us: The Insider Threat, Valerie J. Pelton

Journal of Air Law and Commerce

Given its role in regulating civil and military aviation, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is one of the most visible federal agencies to the general public. To fulfill its domestic and international aviation roles, the FAA must strike a balance between security and commercial interests and its own budget constraints. It is also an economic and intelligence target. While aviation security policy has evolved since 2001, policies designed to promote commerce and to facilitate overseas operations and maintenance by U.S. carriers and aerospace manufacturers have resulted in two entities that are especially vulnerable to insider activities: foreign repair stations ...

Insider Threat: The Unseen Dangers Posed By Badged Airport Employees And How To Mitigate Them, J. Peter Greco 2017 Kirstein & Young, PLLC

Insider Threat: The Unseen Dangers Posed By Badged Airport Employees And How To Mitigate Them, J. Peter Greco

Journal of Air Law and Commerce

Security breaches involving badged airport employees1 are a growing risk in today’s commercial aviation industry. Currently at almost every commercial airport in the United States, employees of airports, airlines, purveyors, and other tenants enjoy unfettered access to the airport’s Security Identification Display Area (SIDA), sterile, and secured areas. In recent years, there have been several high profile incidents deriving from this freedom of movement and lack of oversight which have resulted in the introduction of dangerous contraband into the aviation system. Several alternatives can be implemented to combat this problem.

What is perhaps the most effective of these ...
