Haven't seen the interview yet, but I assume that the people set on causing intentional disruption would likely fly the 20% of drones without serial numbers.

I'm no drone pilot, but from what I understand the radio tech is straightforward to switch out. So even if drones are officially registered and all manufactured drones to market are traceable, it wouldn't be difficult to circumvent.

This drone issue will take a combination of legislation, education, technology and contingency planning to resolve.
