With apologies to our non US readers, I only know about laws here in the Land of the Free:

In no particular order:

Disarming a population without providing each of them a squad of full time body guards.
Exempting government officials from their own laws.

US Constitution (Article I, Section 8, Clause 3). This "interstate commerce clause" states that the United States Congress shall have power "To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes."  - Routinely used by the federal government to override the restraints on its powers by the rest of the Constitution -       ...Especially the 9th and 10th Amendments reserving those rights to the states or the people.

US Constitution - The Eighteenth Amendment (Prohibition of Alcohol).
US Constitution - Twenty Second Amendment (Should have limited U.S. presidents to zero terms).
Anti-supersizing of soft drinks.
The "Affordable" "Health" "Care" Act (Obamacare)
The "Patriot" anti-privacy Act (Bushcare)
FATCA - Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act
SEC v. W. J. Howey Co.
Dred Scott v. Sandford
Roe v. Wade (50,000,000 victims and counting)
New York BitLicense
Any law passed by the Federal government in 1913.
Any law passed by the Federal government after that.
Any rule passed by any Homeowners Association.
Romans 13:1-7

Um, why only ten?

This is a question to lawyers. Check US states laws. There are a lot of stupid laws which came from Europe in 17th century, and they just forgot to cancel them.

I want a BitShares product that has a smooth and functional exchange interface, that will attract traders, that has an API which merchants can plug into, with a fully functional referral system that we can use to market the hell out of it.

It's close. Are we there yet?

I am going to moderate / delete all off-topic replies.  Leaving this one as a warning.
