I'm thinking of trying drone video and photography and add to my portfolio. As I read the US regulations, it sounds as though you need a Remote Pilot Certificate (for $150) to avoid fines from the FAA. Do the stock agencies such as SS, Adobe, Pond5 require proof of that, or is the risk more with the FAA?

Finally, I'm sure I need to then look at the registration requirements in each country I take the drone to - I doubt if my US Remote Pilot Certificate works like a drivers license!

You should probably have the license since you're are using the drone to make (hopefully) money.

I haven't seen any of the stock footage sites requiring that you prove that you have the license.
