Piracy is robbery committed at sea (or sometimes on the shore) by an agent without a commission from a sovereign nation. One who commits piracy by engaging in robbery, pillaging, or plundering at sea is known as a "pirate." The earliest documented instances of piracy are the exploits of the Sea Peoples who threatened the Aegean in the 13th century BC. Seaborne piracy against transport vessels remains a significant issue today, particularly in the waters between the Pacific and Indian Oceans, off the Somali coast, and in the Strait of Malacca and Singapore. The Jolly Roger is the traditional name for the skull-and-cross-bones flags of European and American pirates, and a symbol for piracy that has been adopted by filmmakers and toy manufacturers.
