Summary:
South African music festival Oppikoppi says it will allow its attendees to get their beers in an inventive way. Through aerial drones. Partiers will supposedly be able to order beers on their phone which will be flown to them on a drone which would drop the beer off with a parachute so it floats to the person who bought it, hopefully.

FAA Considers Letting Film/TV Companies Use Drones for First Time

FAA Considers Letting Film/TV Companies Use Drones for First Time

TheStreet (June 3, 2014) — The FAA is reviewing a request by seven film and television companies to use drones when filming. The companies hope to use drones to achieve creative aerial shots, but they also can be less expensive than manned aircraft and some believe, safer. The FAA prohibits the use of unmanned aircraft systems for commercial purposes due to safety and privacy concerns. The FAA acknowledged that granting the exemptions could have "tangible economic benefits." In order to receive permission, the FAA said the companies must show that their drone operations won't be a safety hazard and would be in the public interest. Video provided by TheStreet

Sony, Universal Face Probe for Possible Collusion Against Pandora

TheStreet (July 15, 2014) — The U.S. Department of Justice is reportedly investigating possible pricing coordination by Sony's Sony/ATV Music Publishing and Vivendi's Universal Music Publishing. The Justice Department has also requested documents from music licensing organizations, the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers and Broadcast Music, according to The Wall Street Journal. The Journal said the Justice Department is investigating Sony and Universal's efforts to withdraw their rights from the organizations' licensing agreements with Internet radio company Pandora. A U.S. District Judge found earlier this year that Sony and Universal coordinated with ASCAP to drive Pandora's licensing rates higher. TheStreet's Brittany Umar has details from New York.

FAA Stalls Amazon's Plans By Restricting Commercial Drones

FAA Stalls Amazon's Plans By Restricting Commercial Drones

TheStreet (June 25, 2014) — Amazon's hopes of launching "Prime Air" were put on hold this week by the Federal Aviation Administration. On Monday, the FAA published a document addressing the operation of model airplanes. Buried within the document were regulations that apply to drones, prohibiting their operation. "Any operation not conducted strictly for hobby or recreation purposes could not be operated under the special rule for model aircraft. Clearly, commercial operations would not be hobby or recreation flights. Likewise, flights that are in furtherance of a business, or incidental to a person's business, would not be a hobby or recreation flight" the document stated. In the fall 2013, the FAA said it would aim to come up with a plan to safely integrate drones into airspace by September of 2015 but will likely push that deadline back. For now, Amazon will have to stick with Snail Mail. Video provided by TheStreet
