Let's say someone pays for the shipping through an as yet unnamed commercial launch company. And they place something in orbit that is effectively a kinetic weapons platform. Or at least has the capacity to operate as one while having an alternative primary function.
Ignoring the illegality of shipping a weapon to space, I know that's illegal. But let's say this third party hands over control to another party. Is the ownership of that platform, once it's in orbit, in and of itself illegal?
