lol... the moon is ingrained in EVERY culture. It is a symbol in every culture.

I'm pretty sure there would be havok if the US or anyone for that matter tried to claim the moon. The moon is ALL of the peoples in the worlds moon. No one nation can claim it.

The 1967 Treaty of Outer Space forbids any nation from making a claim on the Moon or any other body in the solar system. However, if you look at the treaties put in effect in the 1500s with the discovery of the "New World", you can see that once the value of the discovery was realized by Spain, Holland, England, etc. war was the result

See my web site at and click on "A claim on the Moon" for a more detailed explaination as well as who in my opinion, is the nation most likely to attempt to lay claim to lunar resources.

IF no one has claimed the moon...

Then WHY did the Justice Court of the Hague legally assign the mineral rights to the Moon to three individuals over 35 years ago?

Guy Cramer, Dr Joe Resnick and Lt Col Timothy O'Neil?
Who Owns the Mineral Rights on the Moon?

IF no one has claimed the moon...

Then WHY does the US NAVY Clementine website make THIS statement on their front page... "after-sales service" ?????


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.

IF no one has claimed the moon...

Then WHY have these websites that are selling land claims on the Moon be allowed to operate and have NOT been sued nor charged with FRAUD?

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.
