British Archaeologist and SAFE Blogger David Gill has taken his campaign defending the U.S. State Department's lack of transparency and bias in favor of archaeologists and foreign cultural affairs bureaucracies to PR Newswire. See:
Looting Matters: Why are Ancient Coins From Cyprus Featured in a Suit Against the US Department of State?
If anything, the costs associated with Gill's PR Newswire release raise their own unresolved questions about Gill's funding and what interests are actually behind this publicity effort. See: http://culturalpropertyobserver.blogspot.com/2009/05/looting-matters-takes-to-pr-newswire.html
Thankfully, efforts to test the legality of the State Department's actions made on behalf of collectors and the small businesses of the numismatic trade will be judged by the Courts and not Bloggers like Gill. There is, after all, another side to the story. See, e.g., http://culturalpropertyobserver.blogspot.com/2009/04/whats-wrong-with-eca-transparency.html
