It depends on your local laws. In the US the courts have just overturned the FAAs requirement for mandatory registration so it is no longer necessary.

You said "courts" and I suspected there may be more to it.

It says a "court" singular in the article, but didn't clarify if the matter was on a continued legal wrangling.

Flase positives as in people are flying it where they shouldn't because they trust the software?

False positives as in the NAZA geofence thinks an airport is nearby when there is none for miles around.

I believe the correct answer is court.

i disagree really...the people that are tempted to turn off the geo-fences are the ones that would've probably flown them where they weren't supposed to anyways.

Actually I know a number of people, myself included who have disabled the Phantom geo-fencing because of the unneeded restrictions it puts in place.

Depends. Filing flightplans and keeping up with FARs never bothered me before so I wouldn't hesitate to do so if I could get access into certain airspace that would be otherwise be closed off. But if it was something small that I'd be flying around the house, there's really no point.
