    You can buy stars too. You get a nice little certificate of ownership and everything.

    No one owns mars so no one can sell it. You could go run all the Martians onto reservations and stake out a claim on all the land you want though. That would proly be legal.

    Anyway "owning" land on Mars is a neat little novelty idea. I don't see it as a real scam or anything. I mean it's not like yer paying $5,000,000. You could always just make up yer own certificate and print it for free but thats kinda lame.

    This is just another I wish I thought of that first idea.

    I thought outer space is a non commerical domain, as in there is no business for people/companies.
    otherwise you can bet your ass there would be a nike tick on the moon.



    plus, I bet earth was sold on some alien planet for 30 cents

    People have funny ways of making money.
    I wonder if anyone actually bought anything, but some stupid people probably did.

    [​IMG] Wait for 50 years and probably then you could have use for a place in Mars. I wonder what's the policy when you go to Mars?
