The Society does not claim to own, control or govern the Moon; instead, it is part of a global effort to provide a legal framework for establishing private property ownership and development rights on Luna. By supporting the right to purchase land claims, the Lunar Republic Society follows long-established legal precedent which sets forth that actual occupation is the only lawful basis for ownership of property on Earth or elsewhere. Only when we are successful with our plan to return humans to the Moon and are able to establish permanent settlements in compliance with international law will land claims become legally enforceable.
