Ward & Partners Web Site Dedicated to Space Law
Australian site. Includes sections on Issues in Space Law (treaties, peaceful uses of space and sovereignty in space), the Regulation of Launches (international liability, national regulatory regimes and sovereignty in space), Commercial Space Activities (telecommunications, remote sensing, global positionng system, exploitation of natural resources in space, international space station and space debris), The Advantages of Launching from Australia and Recent Space Events. This is a fantastic site. SpaceViews described the site as follows: "Space law, in forms ranging from launch regulations to space property rights, is often an obscure, complicated subject, but one of increasing importance. This site, run by an Australian law firm, helps shed some light on the subject, with information on treaties, regulations, and related matters. While there is some focus on Australia, there's also information about international treaties and launch regulations in the United States, Russia, and elsewhere."
