Activists use drone to monitor hunting, hunters shoot down drone →

I ask you: Is drone trespassing new legal ground or old ground viewed in new ways? Are drones a new form of trespassing or do old rules apply? Do property owners have the right to shoot down a drone over their property? Is there a legal argument to be made for the people who shot down this drone, who apparently knew it was going to be used for a purpose they disagreed with or even presumably felt threatened by? Are there free speech implications of activist drone usage? These are interesting days we are living in. Hat tip to The Mental Munition Factory.
