After the discovery of Blackbeard's commanding ship, the rescuers and the state came to a mutual understanding and agreement that allowed Intersal to create photos and videos of the wreckage which they could copyright. This was agreed by both parties in 1998. However, in 2015 a new law was passed by the North Carolina State Legislature stating that all photos of the ship and the wreckage were public records (belonged to the state) and could not be subject to copyright. Both Intersal and Nautilus Productions LLC have put forward lawsuits which are currently making their way through the courts.

Also, a very big welcome from Connecticut. Poor Blackbeard, the governments won't leave him along and let him rot in Hell.

Courts should issue a bench ruling and simply charge the state with contempt imo... as I understand it, there was a legal contract in place, and the state is simply trying to roll rough shod over the public yet once again.....and using taxpayer funds to do it.

They should be glad this isn't in Blackbeards time...they'd all have been strung up.
