A tort is a delict. I also think the first use of tort in the proposal may be incorrect, I'll take a look at it later today. OOC (Not only for IA to consider, but a general question): On a tangent, I have had a general problem (?) with such parlance for some time. I know that this is an English-spe...

Looks interesting. Might bring the Margraviate of Meißen into it. But can't decide/apply until Monday.

OOC: While the question was mentioned briefly once before during the drafting, can it be assured that the current usage of 'Territorial Waters' and 'Exclusive Economic Zone' does not create a house of cards situation? (OOC: I’m not sure, but I think it might do. The rule says ‘Proposals cannot rely...

The only thing I can even imagine being slightly contradictory, is the chance of the unprovoked definition and the mandate to be read so as to allow, when provoked, the use of bioweapons, which have been banned entirely. Author, to avoid the contradiction, just put in "within the restrictions ...

OOC: No. You now have a useless definition of 'Archipelagic nation', and you do not use the defined term 'Open Ocean', instead, you use 'open seas'. For starters.

The resolution of that fact claim is impossible unless the committee actually existed; repeals therefore are not limited by special considerations arising from use of committees. OOC: This is not a repeal. OOC: No nation can be having a different opinion of the clause without being in noncompliance...

OOC: There is no reasonable interpretation of this part that does not include all bodies of land. Otherwise, the definition would be useless in the first place. Ooc: Well it is only reaonable to assume that 'land' means all bodies, not arbitrarily pick and choose different bodies like contients or ...

I hope that makes sense, but I am not sure how else to explain it. OOC: Well, no, it ...

Currency Plural Request

Hello, As per this thread , players were encouraged to suggest new currency plurals to be added to the game when using RL currencies. My nation uses the króna, after the Icelandic and Faroese króna, the correct plural form of which is krónur. I would be much obliged if this form could be added. Many...

Ok then. Should I remove the innocent passage part or abandon the draft? OOC: Without innocent passage, the proposal has no substance at all. Although I must say ITS only covers 'commercial transports', so there is room for innocent passage for other vessels. The proposal still needs work, though, ...

by current legislation, there would not be a 24 nm line around all islands. 168 says the sea border is the low tide mark, without specifying whether it is on a mainland, or all bodies. OOC: Yes.

Just because you refuse to believe that, doesn't mean it was actually true. Where do you see it? By definition a regular coastal state and archipelagic nations need different definitions for sea borders, otherwise the islands could be excluded from the nations "coastline" because it's not...

EEZ especially falls under this, since when one does not take into consideration Law of the Seas and its definitions, it's just a rando...
