I think this is a good move on their part. Stepping up and condemning that type of use. (It was never disclosed what brand was used)

"Media have reported in recent days that a drone launched by the Islamic State with an improvised explosive device attached to it claimed the lives of two Kurdish fighters and injured two French Special Forces soldiers in Iraq.

Though the make, model and provenance of the drone have not been shared by authorities, as the global market leader in consumer drones, DJI feels obliged to speak up about this situation and the use of consumer-drone technology."

Dji already have no-fly zones programmed into the s/w - how about them programming in the areas these terrorists are in so the drone wont fly? - I guess there are a few instances where the 'good-guys' will want to fly drones for tactical or other reasons - those with the right authority could register their drones as 'good' drones so they will fly ?
