The Bailiwick of Guernsey, an island 30 miles off the coast of France, is home to just 65,000 people. It is loyal to the British Crown, but is not part of the U.K. or a member of the European Union. That independence gives its legislature a degree of freedom which has allowed it to become a successful off-shore tax haven. Now, it is seeking to establish the world’s first registry of image rights.
