The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has subpoenaed Brown Harris Stevens, a brokerage with offices in New York City, the Hamptons and Palm Beach, Florida, for information about how the company uses drones for marketing purposes.

A spokeswoman for the brokerage said the FAA had requested information through a subpoena on SkyPan International, a vendor it uses for aerial photography. The brokerage complied with the request, the spokeswoman said.

“The vendor was hired for one project under our new development division,” she said.
