Los Angeles Times quoted Venable partner Jim Burnley in a May 1, 2014 article on current Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) restrictions on drone use for commercial purposes like package delivery and real estate surveillance. At present, the FAA prohibits commercial drones, but plans to propose a formal rule on the issue by the end of 2014, which may give guidance to companies and entrepreneurs eager to invest in the industry.

“I don't think there's any question that market pressure is intense and the FAA is struggling on the regulatory side to keep up,” said Burnley.
