    Maritime law appears to be relatively well armed for the introduction of unmanned (either remotely operated or autonomous) merchant ships. This policy-oriented article explores whether existing public and private maritime law (and law of the sea) can in principle still be applied, examines what existing rules will require amendment or expansion and considers what new rules might have to be developed.
