Pirated vessels used as Motherships (MT Motivator released 17 Jan) The basic model is laid out in Cooter and Ulen (2008). The rational criminal chooses to undertake a crime and its pay-off y is a function of the seriousness of the crime. The criminal is caught with a probability p, which is also a function of the severity of the crime, as is the punishment f(x). The aim of the rational criminal is to maximise the following function: Max: y(x) – p(x) f(x)
&quot;Nobody bothers,&quot; said a Dubai-based shipping executive who declined to be named, echoing the frustration of many in the industry. &quot;The fact that people are eating food that was probably grown 10,000 miles away and transported by sea, it's taken for granted.&quot; &quot;It is the ship's crew who are keeping global trade alive,&quot; he said.

information could be a key enabler of the counter-piracy strategy. While criminals and pirates have effectively used a mix of low-tech and high-tech solutions to collaborate and target shipping, the maritime and national security communities have largely ignored their information strengths. Given the amount of data available and the large community of interest, it has been stated that we should launch a programme to expose the information and develop a crowdsourced counter-piracy campaign. Shipping industry needs to be more transparent and be in a position to answer the question relating to safety of the crew. One of the biggest challenges to initiating an effective global maritime partnership is the creation of a network to make the global maritime partnership a reality. Whether it’s Google Earth, internet chat, enterprise mashups or Twitter, all the tools are available. OCEANUSLive is well placed in the development of such networking.
Social media is the all encompassing term. OCEANUSLive will not provide a free-for-all capability. Verified users, posts and advisory watchkeeping to be employed to ensure security and integrity of the information shared. Real-time security & safety information relating to high risk areas that affects all shipping is available
