Late last year, the FAA and the Department of Transportation—with the drone industry’s support—quickly created an online registry for hobbyists. Its goal is to track down law-breaking owners and hold them accountable. The penalty for not registering: up to three years in prison and a $250,000 fine. There’s no way to know what percentage of drone hobbyists have followed the new rules. But as of February 8, the FAA says 329,954 owners have signed up for the registry. “Make no mistake: Unmanned aircraft enthusiast[s] are aviators,” U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said in a statement in December, “and with that title comes a great deal of responsibility.”

We have to register our full size aircraft before flying.   Not sure how registering drones is breaking any law.   Seems the same to me - if you are going to be operating an aircraft, in US airspace,  the aircraft should be registered and follow all applicable airspace rules and regs.  And, technically, we aren't registering the drones - we are registering (licensing) ourselves.  Again, similar to aviation pilot licensing, car driver licensing, boat/ship captain licensing, etc.

Note - I'm a very much anti-big government person.  However, there are some things we all share that are in need of regulation - and airspace is one of them.
