Re: Drone fights
@Nasimson: but kids play with powerful helicopters all the time. I think the role of parents would be more powerful in teaching the correct use of drones, than we previously imagined.

Re: Safety
@Daniel: yes. Any drone to be given to someone should be having a license for drone piloting. What about those existing drones that are unlicensed though?

Re: Drone fights
Then probably we would need a new job description for downing a rogue drone: an ethical drone hacker?!

Drone fights
In not too distant future when toy drones become cheaper and more common, I foresee kids doing drone racing and drone fights. Now who will regulate that?

Safety
I think that this is important for the future of air safety. Piloting a drone should be a privilege and not a right. This is a step towards that. 

We've all heard about some of these near-collisions of aircraft with drones. That's a big problem drone pilot registration can help fix.
