Outer Space - the place between things (like planets, moons, pita-aggregates).

The Definition and Delimitation of Outer Space claims that there is no legally accepted standard, but the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale has suggested a limit of 100km for national airspace.

The same presentation claims that there are moves to lower that limit by international treaty. In any case, the limit is far below the Moon's orbit, and therefore the Moon definitely is covered by the Outer Space treaty and other Space treaties.

W∴ Balboos, GHB wrote:
does one own their own satellites (nation or business)? Put into outer space, do they become public domain?

The treaties do not preclude the existence of private property in space; they do forbid annexation or applying national law to any celestial body, including the Moon.

There are some interesting lacunae in the Space treaties, which Ben Bova has used to good effect in his stories (google Ben Bova Asteroid Wars).
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
