US State Changes Law To Steal Pirate Video
This article could get a bit confusing; it is about the US state of North Carolina changing an anti-piracy law so it could use the internet to copy and share somebody else’s documentary videos… which happen to be about pirates of the nautical variety! US State Changes Law To Steal Pirate Video

I left a comment there.

"There are multiple situations where states have either changed or created new laws to circumvent private industry rights. Especially after the state has lost court decisions! Florida's legislature is another good example. Having lost their claim to the "Atocha", a Spanish Galleon lost in 1622 to Mel Fisher and Treasure Salvors in the U.S. Supreme Court, the state began creating new laws and legislation, search and salvage requirements and restrictions to prevent future "Treasure Hunters" from continuing their trade. Sadly, the losers are private industry and the taxpayers of these states."

You are so very correct, there are may instances of this type of crap from the world over. The Odyssey Marine saga also comes to mind, UNESCO, as does the recent incident with our friend Dan Porter " Florida Treasure Salvage boat boarded at sea, treasure confiscate ", and many, many more over the years.
It is truly a sad state of affairs that has put so many of us in a rather precarious position, and basically forcing us to work in the shadows and under the skull and crossbones.

and the latest...Bobby Pritchard of GME being attacked by the French government after them being alerted by the Florida government that GME, under Florida permit, is about to salvage one of their war ships even though there is no proof of that. Not even America nor it's states will back it's own citizens. It's downright shameful what this country has become.
