Moon Land Claims in Beijing Court

The saga continues. (see previous post on selling the moon).

The Beijing company ‘Lunar Embassy’ is not giving up its right to sell pieces of the moon, despite being forbidden to do so by the Beijing’s industrial and commercial watchdog agency.

It filed suit in Beijing to regain its business license.

The industrial and commercial watchdog agency suspended the company’s business license on October 28 on grounds of speculation and profiteering. The move halted the company’s normal operation and “incurred huge economic losses,” said Li, chief executive officer of Beijing Lunar Village Aeronautics Science and Technology Co Ltd.

“They don’t have enough evidence to make the ruling,” Li said, stressing his business activities do not violate any law. “In fact, there is not a law or regulation in China that prohibits the selling of land on the moon.”

Earlier reports say 34 clients bought 49 acres at 298 yuan (US$37) an acre — amounting to 14,000 yuan in the first three days of sales.

If he gets his license back I think I start selling some pieces of Mars, Pluto and for that matter any part of the galaxy. I already have a name for the company, 42.
