Consumers rights in satellite private commerce

A “fair licensing contract” transfers the rights related to the use and the distribution of satellite imagery and data to end users. Fair terms must be granted in order to prevent situations where consumer rights may feel threatened. Under an idealistic scenario, the parties to a contract would agree to all the terms, conditions and clauses that would enable the agreement to be enforced successfully.

Some regulations and laws protect the rights of consumers, however, some contracts may interfere with such rights. Therefore, consumers and end users to satellite private contracts should need a helping hand consisting of a legal assistance in the shape of an attorney.
