Are YouTubers that film abandoned places breaking the law?
I heard no mention of how they got in. Whether it was owner permission or anything. Now obviously this is going to start a chain reaction of locals breaking in, which is what I assume these people did.
Now I'm super confused since you hear of stories of people posting drugs on Facebook for example and the police finding them. How do these people regularly get away posting dozens of videos of them breaking and entering places, and breaking probably many other laws?
Or are there actually no laws on this and I can casually go through a window there right now?

Just because you observe the end results of illegal things but don't see people going to prison and getting bankrupted due to their intellectual property violations doesn't mean those things aren't happening. They're just not happening in front of YOU.
There are consequences to wrongs, both criminally and civilly.
Avvo doesn't pay us for these responses, and I'm not your lawyer just because I answer this question or respond to any follow-up comments.
