    United States Supreme Court Agrees to Hear Blackbeard Copyright Case

    In 2015, according to a complaint filed in federal court, North Carolina pirated footage of Blackbeard flagship, the Queen Anne's Revenge. Then North Carolina passed "Blackbeard's Law" to justify that misuse. Rick Allen of Nautilus Productions is now taking his case to the Supreme Court of the United States. The issue is whether Congress validly abrogated state sovereign immunity via the Copyright Remedy Clarification Act in providing remedies for authors of original expression whose federal copyrights are infringed by states. North Carolina maintains that sovereign immunity prevents it from being held liable for damages, as other copyright infringers would be. https://www.prlog.org/12772919-unite...ight-case.html

    So, the pirates of the Supreme Court will rule over the pirates in Congress who ruled over the pirates of North Carolina who ruled over the Treasure Hunters who labored to find a pirate ship. Got it.

    Bake a pie and everybody wants a piece of your labor at a price they can afford- free.

    But "sovereign immunity" is curious ain't it? How does a collection of individuals known as the State have more rights than the individuals from which they are comprised of in a country of equal individual rights?
    Liberty is the Freedom to do the next Right thing.
