The Naval Research Laboratory is not affiliated in any way with any organization selling lunar property or acreage on the moon. NRL has no involvement, either officially or unofficially, in providing "after-sales service" for the purchase of lunar property from the Lunar Embassy, its franchisees, or any similar organizations. Disputes arising from the purchase of lunar property from such organizations must be resolved with the seller directly.
There are other companies out there proclaiming they own the Moon outright. Common sense would indicate these companies are making fraudulent statements. Lunar Properties™ believes we possess as much ownership rights to the surface of the Earth's Moon as any other entity or individual, and Lunar Properties has just as much right to sell Claims for property on the Moon as anyone else. As such, when you buy land on the Moon from Lunar Properties, you are really purchasing (i) a registration in our proprietary database of a claim to a specified lot/s on the surface of Earth's Moon, and (ii) all of Lunar Properties™ rights, title and interest in and to such lot by quitclaim registration, but only to the extent such ownership rights may exist.
What are the current laws regarding the ownership of land on the moon? Currently, laws regarding ownership of land on the Moon are being debated by scientific and international entities with no clear rules or regulation. The United Nations International Space Law Treaty proclaims the moon cannot be owned by any ONE State or person. The problem with this treaty is that it was only signed by a handful of member nations, and only ONE of the nations that signed this treaty (India) has an active space program with an interest in returning to the Moon. In fact, this treaty was rejected by both Russia and the United States and it was never ratified. The debate over who ownes the Moon could go on for decades, with no clear direction, until permanent human outposts on the lunar surface become a near term reality. Any future internationally recognized rules or laws regarding lunar ownership of land on moon, will most likely render all previous claims for moon land null and void, and those companies that have professed they had the legal right to sell actual parcels of land on the moon will undoubtedly find themselves in court, defending their fraudulent actions.
