An associate professor at UMass Dartmouth's School of Law was part of an important discussion on a burgeoning industry in Massachusetts.

Associate Professor Hillary Farber joined in discussion with representatives from MassDevelopment, the Massachusetts Unmanned Aircraft Systems Test Center, and the ACLU of Massachusetts to talk about drones and proposed uses and regulations.

Speaking on WBSM's "Taylor Cormier Show", Professor Farber says the concern over drones isn't a low flying unmanned vehicle, it's what it can carry.

Personal privacy is one of the largest concerns when it comes to regulating drones for commercial, personal, and law enforcement use. The Federal Aviation Administration hopes to have a firm set of regulations in place for drones as soon as possible.
