The 2007 summer and winter issues of the Journal of Space Law are now available without charge.  It is the policy of the Journal of Space Law to make volumes available on-line when they become three years old. Volumes also continue to be available through Hein OnLine.

As the tables of contents show, these volumes are filled with timely and relevant articles by some of the community’s most well-respected authors. Topics range from certification of satellite data for use in legal proceedings under the U.S. Federal Rules of Evidence; informed consent for space tourism; the legal foundation of U.S. national security policy; patent rights under the Commercial Orbital Transportation Services program; and, shareholders’ actions in a State-owned remote sensing company, among others. Authors include R. Cargill Hall, Stephan Hobe, Tracey Knutson, Sylvia Ospina, Qi Yongliang, and Yun Zhao among others. Issue 2 also contains translations of Chinese national space law and Japan’s Geospatial Information Utilization Promotion Bill.
