Just out of interest, is there no laws yet about owning the orbital space above your country?
Whats to stop there being so many satellites up there in the end a country can't even launch its own rockets?
Also, i understand they're in orbit but when beaming down to a country, doesn't that frequency still have to adhere to that country's spectrum rules?
Its all been defined, its mostly derived form maritime law so works very similar. There is a set distance that is considered your national airspace/waters the rest is considered to be international. But space law is already a thing.
