Not sure re copyright issues, but sounds like an abandoned laptop becomes the property of whoever it is left with.

https://law.justia.com/codes/delaware/2019/title-25/chapter-40/section-4002/

"any person who holds, stores, safekeeps or otherwise is left with possession of any abandoned personal property, including automobiles, motorcycles, boats and furnishings, which has been abandoned by the owner as defined in § 4001 of this title, shall be vested with complete and absolute title to said abandoned personal property and shall have all right to sell, alienate, gift or otherwise dispose of the said abandoned personal property"

Of course, if the story is true, we don't know who left it at the store.

§ 4001 says "For the purposes of this chapter “abandoned personal property” shall be deemed to be tangible personal property which the rightful owner has left in the care or custody of another person and has failed to maintain, pay for the storage of, exercise dominion or control over, and has failed to otherwise assert or declare the ownership rights to the tangible personal property for a period of 1 year."  Thy NYP says the laptop was left at the shop in April and seized in December.  That means the hard drive was copied before it became the shop owners property.  It's also likely that the contents of the hard drive is intangible personal property, which is specifically exempted from being considered abandoned.  If this is real, the shopkeeper is in for some serious legal problems.

Not sure of law on this - if left at repair shop with unpaid bill, can shop owner rightfully claim lien on that property?

This was bigger news in Janauary which hurt Biden a little bit at the time but then backfired and got Trump impeached. 

Again had Trump taken leadership over COVID and used his message of protectionism against China which was attractive to many swing voters in the Rust Belt, He could have hammered Biden on his comfy positions with China and rolled out some phoney scandal around this time and won votes.

 

In short this is a nothing burger.

But I do hope that all this nastiness which probably has some truth leads the new administration to investigate the Trump Organization and Kushner. There is no way laws haven't been violated by them.

Biden's son isn't in the public eye. 

 

even if this happened to don jr. I don't think it affects voters at all in their mindset. 

 

maybe if it was a wife or something but even then doubtful. 

 

trump will be making a huge mistake focusing on this too much at the 3rd debate. no one cares mr. president

The reactions to these story (especially from Twitter and Facebook) might overtake the actual story (whether true or not). It's not a good look for Biden coming down the stretch regardless. Whether that changes anything will have to be seen.

Interfering in an election by suppressing links to news reports is a shame. People need to get educated in a proper way.
