International Space Rules Apply

International space law and commercial space activities: the rules do apply, by Michael J. Listner for The Space Review

"Commercial space activities are beginning to proliferate and hold great promise for the expansion of both human and robotic activities in outer space. Companies like SpaceX and Orbital Sciences are providing commercial cargo missions to the International Space Station (ISS) under contract to NASA, and others, such as Sierra Nevada Corporation, are planning commercial crewed flights to the ISS as well. Beyond services to the ISS, companies have formed to offer human lunar landings, missions to extract minerals and resources from asteroids, and even a planned human flyby of Mars set to launch in 2018."
