In order to explain this complexity of laws regulating anti-piracy, the legal pluralism theory, namely Menski’s kite model with its four corners of lawmaking sources - nature; society; state law; and international law and human rights law - is applied. The research methods used are: survey research; in-depth interviews; and content analysis of documents. (Less)
