Stop using this disaster to promote that vulgar video... there's already been a whole thread on it and it's totally disingenuous…

This woman is a hero. That's really all I have to add. We need more people like her.

Sorry,but your opinion does not count. According to an earlier transcript I found on NPR, BP claims to "own" the oil. What we are dealing with is legalese.
If Bp can claim "ownership" of the oil (which they have) then they have the power to tie everyone's hands. And apparently the fine print of contracts gives them that power.
As an example, if you have ever been a renter and made an "improvement" on your apartment, legally, anything you attach to the building becomes the landlord's property.
Since BP legally owns the oil, anything it becomes attached to belongs to them. BP owns the oceans and the dead wildlife.
