Keep your stupid drones away from piloted aircraft, rages CAA

If flying drones near aircraft is really dangerous ...

... surely additional legislation is inappropriate, given that (a) existing legislation would appear to suffice and (b) there are, as we are constantly reminded, a non-zero number of people who would endanger aircraft on purpose.

Can't those people charged with ensuring our safety come up with some electronic counter measures and some electronics / software to trace operators?

I'm pretty sure there's going to be a market in anti-drone devices, as an anti-paparazzi measure for wealthy celebs, if nothing else. Wonder what you'd need for safe capture? Anyone fancy going into business?
