Interesting Analysis of Public Comments on the Proposed Greek MOU

John Hooker has written an interesting analysis of the public comments on the proposed Greek MOU:

I also wonder how many of those who supported the MOU would think differently if they knew that US Customs and the State Department have taken the position that the Cypriot and Chinese MOU's cover anything "from Cyprus" or "from China" apparently on the theory they could also be "first discovered" there (even though they could also have been discovered elsewhere).

I suppose that depends on whether the individual is solely interested in protecting Greek contexts or they instead believe import restrictions are a good way to take unprovenanced artifacts off the market.
