In Utah, you're not allowed to capture the rain that falls on your roof unless you own the water rights to it.

That's right, if raindrops keep fallin' on your head, you had better not collect or drink them them -- or you're violating Utah state law.

Is there any other place on earth, during any historical period on earth, where people were criminalized for capturing the water that falls on their own property?

We already know if plants grow on your property -- that you didn't even plant-- that you can be sued by Monsanto and the court will side with the corporation.

Corporations will be coming after your water before long. This is what happens when you live under a corporate oligarchy. The air you breathe would be privatized and sold to you, if it were possible to do so.
