Intellectual property, innovation and new space technology.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The disruptions caused by technological innovation have now moved
into the space industry, with the emergence of private, commercial operators (‘New Space’). This chapter considers one of the unique challenges that the New Space industry encounters with its rapid development: the interaction of intellectual property with national security concerns, safety and financial risks, export controls and international law relating to cooperation in space.
