    Spanish woman claims ownership of the Sun

    Spanish woman claims ownership of the Sun
    (AFP) – 2 days ago
    MADRID — After billions of years the Sun finally has an owner -- a woman from Spain's soggy region of Galicia said Friday she had registered the star at a local notary public as being her property.
    Angeles Duran, 49, told the online edition of daily El Mundo she took the step in September after reading about an American man who had registered himself as the owner of the moon and most planets in our Solar System.
    There is an international agreement which states that no country may claim ownership of a planet or star, but it says nothing about individuals, she added.
    "There was no snag, I backed my claim legally, I am not stupid, I know the law. I did it but anyone else could have done it, it simply occurred to me first."
    The document issued by the notary public declares Duran to be the "owner of the Sun, a star of spectral type G2, located in the centre of the solar system, located at an average distance from Earth of about 149,600,000 kilometres".
    Duran, who lives in the town of Salvaterra do Mino, said she now wants to slap a fee on everyone who uses the sun and give half of the proceeds to the Spanish government and 20 percent to the nation's pension fund.
    She would dedicate another 10 percent to research, another 10 percent to ending world hunger -- and would keep the remaining 10 percent herself.
    "It is time to start doing things the right way, if there is an idea for how to generate income and improve the economy and people's well-being, why not do it?" she asked.

    Well played, but I'm going to claim the space in between the earth and the sun, and charge a toll for transporting her photons through my airspace... or.. space-space as it may be.

    Does that mean I have the right to sue her from affects of sun burn, skin cancer, heat stroke, global warming, and drought?
