John Batchelor and I welcomed Dr. Mark Sundahl to the program to discuss the Outer Space Treaty (OST), a hypothetical Canadian-American space business developing lunar resources, and legal issues from the Canadian, American, and international perspective.  We talked about international space law, property rights under the OST, courts of international jurisdiction, insitu resource usage allocation,  and more.  The US domestic commercial space law came up as did the commercial space law taking place in other countries.  Our discussion with Dr. Sundahl was different than most since we had a hypothetical business as the basis for how we talked about and evaluated commercial space law, the OST, and related topics.

You can email Mr. Batchelor or Dr. Sundahl through me at  Dr. Sundahl can also be reached through his faculty website at the Cleveland State University Law School.
