I know one: Italy.
Here all the fossils are State property.
Someone with more knowledge than I please pipe in here, but are the laws
in Canada not similar? As I understand it, in Canada, all fossils (or
vertebrates, at least), are considered the property of the government,
regardless of whether they come from private or public land. The
government, however, acknowledges that since it cannot possibly collect and
reposit every single fossil, allows fossils from private land to be held by
the land owner until such time that it need be reclaimed for the public
trust (i.e., turned over to a museum, etc. for study)...?
