Law screws up pirate fighting

As set out in Legal flaws hinder piracy fight, warn lawyers:
Flaws in anti-piracy laws and their enforcement are hampering the fight against ship hijacks that have claimed 40 vessels off the Somali coast this year, maritime lawyers and officials have warned.

The complex blend of international agreements and domestic rules governing piracy has triggered disagreements about when and how other ships can intervene and what to do with suspects once arrested.
You know, I think I've heard that before somewhere...
