CCL Version .98 Has Been Released

Release notes:

  1. Clarified that within the Equity Decentralization Rule, employee majority-owned cooperative corporations must have equal ownership.
  2. Clarified that to be a Adjudicator or Enforcer Member, one cannot simply be one in name, but must actually conduct relevant work. Also added stipulations to maintaining such membership amidst temporary suspensions.
  3. Required the enforcers in their Rules of Engagement include policies on cooperating with other enforcers, dealing with potentially non-clients and non-CCL member victims.
  4. Finally came down on a fraud/legality policy regarding currency. The challenge was to ensure legality of things like crypto, commodities, and other media of exchange but illegalize fraudulent currencies like fiat bank notes that can be printed at will. The law illegalizes those currencies that aren’t either fixed in quantity or directly backed by a physical commodity. Bank notes are illegal to use for transactions – except to exchange for legal currency.
  5. In another big and innovative move, a solution to aggregate problems like global warming/climate change has been established through the use of a new legal category of “unjust coercion”: “Cumulative Aggression.”
  6. Added that “Members cannot lawfully withhold or prevent the publicity of their CCL Core version and CCL modules with any other CCL Member.” Without knowing someone’s legal status, it’s impossible to know if one is in goodwill and where one stands legally with another contractor.
  7. Clarified introductory function of the CCL Core document.
  8. Clarifies that aggression and violation of property rights are a distinct category from breach of contract, even though such activity is forbidden as such in CCL Core (a contract). In other words, if someone murders someone, the murderer would be charged for murder, not breach of contract.
  9. Changed that prescribed easements require not just an absence of a complaint of nuisance by neighboring owners, but that such a complaint did not win in arbitration.
  10. Added a requirement that all communication about CCL matter between Enforcers and Adjudicators must be documented on a CCL-RDL and made accessible to members within 30 days.
  11. Added “Disease Policy” requirement for all businesses (regarding immunization and pandemics).
  12. Clarified sentencing for police brutality. Enforcers who implement excessive justice-coercion are guilty of excessive coercion; they cannot be off the hook entirely, nor fully liable for (e.g.,) murder, if the person was accidentally killed, etc.
  13.  Added prohibition regarding using bank notes/fiat currency of central banks.
  14. Added requirements for body cameras recorded footage, and the records of disciplined enforcers.
  15. Clarified the exclusivity of the right of Enforcers to exercise justice coercion; one may protect another’s person or property as a legal right on the scene of an unexpected crime.
  16. Limits stacking of charges. 30 years bondage is maximum penalty for groups of crimes committed all at once.
  17. Added new graphic for clarifying ownership of orbits.

CCL Version .97 Has Been Released

Release Notes:

  1. Added subdivision option for orbital spheres (property boundaries in space).
  2. Added accessory definition in the context of Enforcers who fail to report a known crime.
  3. Added “willing to “Must be capable and willing to transfer member’s data…” for a CCL-RDL (Creative Common Law-Ready Distributed Ledger). This one is quite important since it iterates a substantial degree of ownership regarding personal data.
  4. Clarified than an audit-warrant is required for one’s personal financial data to be viewed within a CCL-RDL.
  5. Clarified that standard of financial fraud are evaluated according to latest version of US GAAP, so long as they don’t conflict with CCL.
  6. Added “Data Ownership Policy” as list of required policies for any seller of goods/services.
  7. Clarified the requirements for Adjudicator’s Policies and Procedures of Justice being publicly available.
  8. Completely removed litigation from the dispute settlement process, and distinguished more clearly between mediation and arbitration.
  9. Redefined “judge” in light of litigation modification (= an Adjudicator that presides over trials).
  10. Changed time requirement for final result of jury trial after negotiations.
  11. Required that the results of any jury trial must be made available to the public.
  12. Clarified that an “Adjudicator” is simply a “lawyer,” and that the other kinds of adjudicators are subsets of this category (e.g., mediators, judges, etc.)
  13. Clarified the conflict of interest between Enforcers and Adjudicators; for example, a person or corporate entity cannot co-own both at the same time, or be a member of both at the same time
  14. Added an (important) policy that makes it illegal for Enforcers and Adjudicators to require third-party purchases from clients or potential clients. This prevents a world where health insurance, car insurance, and countless other good/services are used as a weapon against the general public, compelling them to purchase something in order to obtain (for example) legal representation or property-rights protection.
  15. Similarly, if private Enforcers want to offer additional membership/identification records (e.g., ID card) besides the digital CCL-RDL record, this has to be free and without cost to the “consumer.” This obviously doesn’t entitle anyone to free property-rights protection, but only one’s record of being under CCL jurisidiction.
  16. Clarified access to CCL-RDL records, including the requirement that any conditional access granted to a third-party government (e.g., intelligence or defense department) for the purposes of criminal investigation must itself be made publicly available within 30 days of issuance. (In other words, all CCL members must be able to know that a third-party government entity has accessed CCL records).
  17. Added “blocking witnesses” an example of “obstruction of justice.”
  18. Clarified uses of precedent, including exceptional cases for arbiters that involve the use of third-party law (cited internally to CCL Core).
  19. Established rules for overruling precedent cases.

CCL Version .95 Has Been Released

Making final touches – some very very important ones!

  1. Added policies regarding obstruction of justice.
  2. Clarified statute of limitations and boundaries for restitution/sentencing, including necessary items for the second category of non-personal aggressions.
  3. Required Enforcers to post their Rules of Engagement to all their clients and other Enforcers.
  4. Added requirements for all members regarding the reporting of crimes (private police have no incentive to inform other Enforcers regarding crimes committed in certain conditions out of their incentive to increase profits, thereby leading to moral hazard).

CCL Version .93 Has Been Released

Many big changes came this way as we head towards version 1.0!

  1. There is now a new section under property rights for Maritime Law and Seasteading! This will be particularly important for the ongoing progress of the Seasteading project.
  2. Clarified access and permissions of user accounts etc. for CCL-Ready Distributed Ledgers. Moved that material out of a footnote into the main text.
  3. Corrected a few typos.
  4. Revised Decentralization Equity Rule. It originally required a third ownership by “clients,” but this party is ambiguous and may not be relevant to all businesses, at least those without regular membership. Instead, it simply requires Enforcers (private police) and Adjudicators (private courts) to be majority-owned by employees (function cooperatively).
  5. Added a final appendix and sources used.
  6. Clarified emendations to CCL and specified that Enforcers and Adjudicators may only enforce one version of CCL Core at a time (for obvious reasons), but as many modules as they wish.
