Chinese appeals court banned a company from selling land on the moon. According to the state media, “celestial bodies” could not be anyone's property.

The Beijing Administration of Industry and Commerce had revoked the business license and fined 50,000 yaun from Lunar Embassy, a Beijing-based company, since it tried to make money by selling individuals ownership of an acre of lunar land for 298 yuan ($37) each. It was reported that 34 clients had bought 49 acres of land, earning the company more than 14,000 yuan ($1,800) within three days of its opening.
