So many grammar errors & mispronounced words...& generally disjointed commentary. Please hire a proofreader or editor. Heck, I'll work for you for free just to save you the embarrassment next time. 😐

I didn't learn shit besides the fact that if I put an old ship out 200 miles away from the coast I can turn it into a prostitution and drugs party zone lol

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

Everyone is born under maritime law in the us technically because you are born through a “water canal” so they can write you off as an agricultural asset. This way they are able to tax your corporate name that is in all caps so that you are able to be indebted to them. Yet people don’t know about this and is very hard to write off debt because going alone against the government is not plausible with all the bullshit hoops you’d have to jump through.

~ 🌊 🛳 👮 📖 📚 👨‍⚖️ ~ *Question: why would it be legal for Sea Code to have immigrant workers 12 miles off shore when that would still be in the in the contiguous zone?*
gimmethegepgun (2 months ago)
Labor laws don't fall under customs, pollution, taxation, or immigration, so they wouldn't apply in the contiguous zone. The foreign workers part would probably run afoul of immigration laws though.

I still don’t know the right words to express my gratitude to the Great Dr. EMUA. After been diagnosed of HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS in 2014, i was given so many health prescription and advice with no improvement, I totally lost hope, until i found testimonies of Great Dr. EMUA in an online research and on Facebook, Like anybody would be, I was very skeptical about contacting him, but i later did and he opened up to me and told me what was involved and he started the remedies for my health. Thank God, i was cured from herpes by the herbal medication I received from him. I never thought that herpes can be cured, from the bottom of my heart I'm truly grateful,i pray you have long life so you can help many more people on earth with your herbal medical support, You can Email him via his email dremuahelphome@outlook.com or dremuahelphome@gmail.com for easy and fast communication you can also call or add him on whats-app with this number +15185546034, one thing i love most about DR EMUA is honestly
