    Don't search youtube looking for Steve Irwin's death.

    Somebody somwehere will try to press a claim in the Australian courts that the public has a right to see that video. And that somebody somewhere would be wrong.

    That person would also lose the case as I would assume that the courts would rule that the footage is the property of the production company and the family and they don't have to share the footage.

    I believe law enforcement officials had copies of the video as part of the mandatory investigation; from a certain point of view, that video tape should be available to the public. I don't happen to agree.

    The sad part is, you're right. I don't think I'll ever understand why people have such a need to see stuff like this. And feel so strongly about it, in fact, to go to court over it. Dispicable.
