Sabi ng BATAS | Tara na’t mag-beach: The sea/ocean is a property of PUBLIC DOMAIN

Since it’s vacation period man when many people go to beaches, I just want to share what I learned in our Property Law class this evening:

The sea/ocean is a property of PUBLIC DOMAIN — it can neither be owned by the State nor by a private person (natural or juridical). it should be made available to the public.

Thus, for example, di ka pwedeng sitahin ni A kung nakarating ka na sa isang portion ng dagat na nasa tapat ng kanyang beach resort, kahit dun ka nagbayad sa katabing beach resort ni B. HINDI niya exclusive na pagmamay-ari ang portion na yan ng dagat. HINDI kasama sa binabayaran mo ang pagbabad o paglangoy mo sa dagat.

Kaya kung sisitahin ka next time, sabihin mo, PUBLIC DOMAIN ang karagatan; kahit yung mga sirena gaya ni Dyesibel, pwedeng magbabad sa karagatan nang walang bayad basta wag lang nilang angkinin ang karagatang nasa teritoryo ng Pinas.
