ASATing with lawyers

Here’s an interesting sidelight on the satellites post below – “somebody” is trying to restrict access to commercial satellite imagery of the so-called “Box on the Euphrates” in Syria, the suspected nuclear reactor the Israelis blew up.

And how are they doing it? They’re buying the rights and trying to use intellectual property law. Another problem for you – satellites don’t seem to be open source, let alone free-as-in-speech, or as in beer for that matter.
