What is the legal basis on which a warship can stop and search a yacht in international waters looking, say, for drugs or weapons? Similarly, on what legal basis can a warship stop and search in international waters a merchant vessel suspected of violation sanctions against, say Iran or North Korea?

I stumbled on this video after watching your most recent ones - Q2 2019. Difference in voice and mic is just stunning, i thought it was a different guy for the first several seconds. Having heard how much you've improved is just inspirational <3

This was very fascinating, thank you. My favourite were the pirate radio stations who floated offshore outside of national jurisdiction and who played music that wasn’t permitted in the country because of all the moral panic.

According the the list I've consulted, the US passport is not the 8th most powerful. In fact, it's not even listed at #10. I want my money back!!! Great video!!

If you are a us mariner read on the Jones act law. Hire a good maritime admiralty attorney and hope they are helpful in getting you what you deserve. Don’t ever take a offer the company is giving you because you will get screwed huge

4:53 What happens if your parents are citizens of a country that doesn't follow jus sanguinis citizenship and you're born on a cruise ship that's registered in a country that doesn't follow jus soli citizenship? Would you be born stateless then?

If a new island was discovered in the Pacific: The US would take its oil. The UK would colonize it. Spain would have a civil war. France would surrender. Mexico would immigrate there. Russia would make it communist. Japan would murder everyone. Turkey would only take half of it. Greece would lose all its money.

Damn, I thought 5 miles out was international waters! I don't even remember how I got that now apparently bad info. I was thinking about building a fishing/house-boat to get out of an increasingly corrupt US without sacrificing some perks of living near civilization. Oh well. I guess it's a good thing I was informed about this issue before I spent much time or any money on it.

Some interesting facts: If a crime is committed on a ship, it's Captain (master) acts like a judge: so (s)he can lock people down in somewhere of ship and deboard them at some port. Because a ship is considered as a land of its flag, a Captain could cause a declaration of war on behalf of a ship's country. A captain can make a couple married. A captain MUST help if encountered people whose life is at stake without endangering ship, crew and passengers.

Another interesting story about maritime laws and Prohibition: As said in the video, a ship is considered territory of its registration country, so that country's laws are enforced inside even if it's docked in another country. So French liners stayed longer than needed in New York between their westbound and eastbound trips, and were open to be visited by the locals. Therefore they were Big Apple's only legal bars, with the New Yorkers enjoying the finest French wines instead of some random illegal booze... Obviously it had a huge success and it was almost as profitable for the French Line as the proper trips...

Laws are made and designed by Humans, of course they will have fallacies and will be exploited by other Humans.

I have some questions about Maritime: What rules are internationally recognised? Can you break contract law in the international water aka NDA's without repercussions or would you then be a civil fugitive and be penalised when you came to shore? Similarly, Copyright law, if you have a none registered (aka pirate vessel) and made games infringing on copyright, would you be penalised onshore assuming the ship always stayed offshore so it could never be searched?

This is a simple and clear explanation of International Law of the Sea for Joe Public, so thank you for that. However, the video title is a bit confusing. The video is mostly about the international laws regulating the public order at sea which is related to International Law of the Sea (a branch of Public International Law). Only the Nationality Law part (the part about the babies born at sea) of the video is related to Private International Law. Maritime Law, on the other hand, mostly means the laws governing ships, shipping, maritime contracts/accidents/torts, etc. As you can see, although both have the same context (sea), Maritime Law is mostly regulating the relation between private persons and entities while International Law of the Sea is mostly regulating the issues regarding open sea and the relation between governments. Therefore, I think it is better to change the video title as "How Law of the Sea Works?"

Sometimes people use maritime law to their advantage. Back in the 60's, Rock and Roll music was banned in England, so there were many ships setup in international waters just outside of England that would broadcast Rock n Roll music over the radio that was aimed at England. Since they were in international waters they were not considered illegal since they didn't fall under English law.

Panama doesn't have fewer people than Minneapolis? I'm confused, can someone explain? Google tells me that Panama has a population of 4.099 million and that Minneapolis has 422,331. If you look at the entire Minneapolis metro area and not the city, it is still 3,600,618.

I would say that. In territorial waters war ships have full autonomy, so their countries’ law is applied in every case. For cargo and cruise ships its the same (law of their registration country) unless: The crime extends to the coastal state, the crime creates prejudice to the coastal state, the captain of the ships asks to local authorities their help, the intervention of the coastal state authorities is in order to stop drug dealings. So on board a ship even docked in a harbor the ship’s country law is applied.You missed other zones of the sea as internal waters, ecological protection zone, archeological zone and the continental shelf zone. I love your videos😃😃 greetings from Italy
