    "The question is very simple: do matter and antimatter obey the same laws of physics?.??

    depends on what you mean by laws of physics.
    when CPT is conserved, they obey the same laws.
    If CPT is violated, they behave differently... but still under the laws of physics.... so yes even in that case.

    "The law of physics" are laws for all types of matter, so... yes.

    There are tiny differences between particles and their antiparticles. This is known as CP violation and has been observed in many experiments.

    yeah sorry... I can't edit to correct it, I meant to write CP violation....
