Piracy in the 21st Century

U.S. Navy Seals last week performed a daring rescue of two hostages, one an American woman, captured by Somali pirates. The international response to piracy in that part of the world has been uneven. On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll meet two Northeast Ohio lawyers working with authorities in the Seychelle Islands to seek justice. Why does piracy flourish and what is the recourse? And we'll look back to a time to when piracy was a problem on the Great Lakes, too.
