Wrong, this idiot doesn't understand "common law". Karl Lentz says it best, "even a dog knows not to get on the couch." Codes have nothing to do with it. "Caveman#1 says to caveman#2, give me my bone back, or I'll crush your skull with my club." The tribal elders gathered and said, give him his bone back or we will let him crush your skull with a club.

This sounds suspect, but perhaps that's because the U.S. has redefined "common law". Traditionally, common laws are decided on a case-by-case basis in order to have an actor make reparations for actions against an individual or their property. It's thus based on "case law", and within the Commonwealth has a history dating back centuries. Civil law is the part where judges interpret established statutes. France and its related territories, including Quebec here in Canada, follow civil law systems. Commonwealth member countries base their civil systems on common law decisions, but make some room for trust law to build statutes to facilitate, and prevent against, the transfer of liability from an individual onto corporations in a licensor-licensee relationship. The licensor establishes limitations on the actions of individuals operating within such a system of transfer. Under common law, there is no transfer of liability, and thus no potential for liability, and thus individuals are free to act with the understanding that damages or loss to others or their lawfully-owned properties must results in reparations to them.

Laws made by unelected judges doesn't sound right to me.

That's because elected judges are more likely to take a bribe to get re-elected and why Latin America has so much corruption.
