Somebody has left his keyboard and keyboard cover in our room at the vore party.

Please, pass this message along to the people who have been at the party as well.

I can only imagine what happened to its owner :/

Isn't a vore party supposed to end with less people than it started with? ;-)

Is it yours then? Because if the actual owner pops up then you will in trouble if you've stolen their property.

Everyone knows that an unclaimed item can be taken legally after at least thirty days of it being notified to the public. After that, one can legally claim it.

Well... That's the policy my work place has at least.

I suspect the police would disagree. Workplace rules frequently =/= rest of world, or even the next US State over. Either way, why risk the misdemeanor charge?

EDIT:

In fact: http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictiona ... Lost+Goods describes things in reasonable detail. Looks like American lost property laws are based on the English ones.

Important line: "Some state statutes provide that a finder of lost goods is entitled to recover expenses that were necessary to preserve the property and to a reward for holding it. These statutes are consistent with statutes providing that the finder must return the property to its true owner and that a finder who is aware of the identity of the true owner is guilty of Larceny if he or she keeps the goods. Such statutes are enacted in order to aid the finding of lost property."

The finder does have some rights in regards to recompense for the finding/storage/maintanance of the property, but they have NO right to pass it on to 3rd parties, nor do they generally have the right to keep it if the true owner comes forward.

"An individual who finds and takes possession of lost property ordinarily has the right to possess it over everyone but the true owner. Some statutes provide that if the true owner neglects to appear and claim the property within a certain time period after the finding of the article has been published in a local newspaper, the finder is entitled to retain part of the property or part of its value while the remaining portion passes to the state, or one of its departments or agencies."

Essentially, no matter what, 'Finders Keepers' doesn't apply in law, and handing it off to the first person who decides they want it, is also right out.

reclusenutcase: Your workplace is therefore PROBABLY in breach of the law. They might want to consult a lawyer or something before a disgruntled employee, bereft of their lost, now stolen, property, takes them to court.
