Yes, interesting.

Might be able to deliver other stuff than books, too. How about dropping some wire-cutters into the exercise yard of a prison? Or lock-picks?

Think there will be anti-quadcopter missile launchers or something like that. A simple glue spray might be enough..

In town a paintball gun would probably be effective while out in the rural areas a 12ga would probably handle it...

plus a camera, a couple of servos, an arduino and some clever "oh, just a bird, cease fire"-sketch.
An air-defense sentry-gun would be immensely cool!

An anti-quadcopter-quadcopter could be something as simple as just flying above the target with at light net that is released once the target's rotors catch it.
Being reduced to a tricopter will probably return it to ground level quite fast.

"metalstorm"

Yes, and no.

Expensive system, expensive munition and a significant risk of UXO and collateral damage.

Using that against simple UAVs would be yet another example of the "Western tendency" to use very complicated systems against simple threats.

maybe some magnetic gun to disorientate the QC, some blasting an EM pulse (or will this fry birds?)

maybe a water-gun to short-circuit the QC?

Overkill is an often underrated achievement.

Also, a multi-barreled gun is over complicated, but building another aircraft that catches up to the UAV and drops a net onto it, or making an arduino controlled surface to air missile launcher, isn't?

There is video somewhere on youtube of a quadcopter fitted with an uzi being fired remotely.

Also read recently several hundred people have applied for licences to shoot down drones flying over their property.

One problem with drone counter measures is that some of these devices seem to be getting very small. It might be hard to even know they are there.

The licenses don't actually exist as yet but Deer Trail, Colo. has received over 900 requests for licenses at $25 each.

Quote
Still, the Federal Aviation Administration isn’t amused, issuing a note last summer when the ball started rolling pretty much warning people to keep their weapons holstered if a drone happens by, permit or no. ”Shooting at an unmanned aircraft could result in criminal or civil liability, just as would firing at a manned airplane,” said the government agency.
