You've heard the sentiment, that corporations have either total or at least too much control over America. Depending on your views, you either think "yeah that sounds about right", "get off my lawn hippy!" or perhaps "cheese goes great with more cheese!". That last one may have been me, in either case, here's a decent example of corporate control of public property.
As was stated in the video, this is a public beach. No authority has been given to BP to control it, yet they feel they have the right to tell people where they can and cannot be on public land. This may also just demonstrate that BP is run by assholes, either way, interesting video.
