Concentrates on the law governing commercial space ventures, commercial telecommunications satellite projects, in particular. The telecommunications satellite industry is by far the most mature of all the commercial space industries with a commensurate body of law governing it, and many of the same types of regulatory processes and private law transactions discussed in this book also pertain to the implementation of other commercial, and even non-commercial and military space ventures.

The reader will find a description of the necessary legal actions lawyer and client must take to provide for the construction, launching and operation of a privately-owned telecommunications satellite. Both international and national laws and regulations pertaining to space projects are discussed.

A step-by-step approach to legal actions has been adopted to help make the book a practical reference tool. It is designed to assist lawyers in private practice, government attorneys, corporate legal counsel, entrepreneurial executives and teachers and students of space law.
