The legal questions in relation to the ownership of the sky in which drones are operating must, as a priority, be addressed. Does a landowner, for example, have a right to exclude the use of drones over their property or sue for trespass where such an incursion takes place? This article seeks to answer such questions. It places the spotlight firmly on the uncertainty which surrounds the ownership of the lower altitude airspace and discusses how greater clarity might be provided.
