Finders Not Keepers in Lottery Ticket Case

AOL News has an interesting story about a finding case in England where a couple who found a winning lottery ticket were forced to return the money (at least the portion they hadn't spent) to the original owner, who had dropped it.  The story, and an accompanying poll, suggest the continued impact of the "finders keepers" cultural myth -- a majority of poll respondents say that the finders should have been able to keep the money won with the ticket.
