On the other   hand maritime and admiralty law makes what happened with sealand theoretically   legal. Law on the high seas should become interesting in the next century as   the technology develops to create artificial islands. It also brings up the   question of space stations that are built and launched by corporations. The   way things are going one would assume that admiralty law will apply to space   as well but I have never heard of a case.   -----Original Message----- From:
