About

Overview

Piracy is not simply a fabled part of seafaring history that serves as a foundation for entertaining Hollywood movies. Piracy is alive and well in the modern world. Armed with sophisticated tools like GPS locators and cell phones, today's pirates prey on both commercial and private vessels, and their attacks have far-reaching effects.
