Did you know that US state governments can legally steal your photos and videos?

It's sort of old news, so maybe you knew, but I didn't until I stumbled on it today.

North Carolina passed a specific law in 2015 making such copyright infringement legal, and the US Supreme Court recently upheld states' rights to do so. Here's one article about it, but more can be found by Googling 'Blackbeard's Law':
