Commercial activities in the outer space by the private sector from the perspective of international law

* Isfahan Azad University, Khorasgan, Isfahan, Iran
One of the activities that has been considered for humankind since the beginning of access to outer space has been the exploitation and commercial use of the region. In terms of law and in accordance with the treaties on space, the outer space is a common heritage of humanity, and one of the basic principles governing this region is the principle of lack of ownership and private property. The inclusion of commercial incentives for space activities has led lawyers to extend the scope of state-run space treaties to commercial activities and the presence of private individuals in spatial activities. This also led lawyers to seek to define and redefine the concepts and principles of space law. However, the question raised is that: The outer space legal system and related treaties justify the exploitation and commercial activity of outer space and celestial objects by the private sector? The initial answer to this question, based on library studies and descriptive-analytic methods, is that: spatial regulation does not directly anticipate the commercial activity and exploitation by the private sector, but implicitly and with a number of limitations, this accepted the matter.
