Space law regulates relations for working with objects such as geographic information systems (GIS). Geo-information systems are automated information systems that display spatial data on a variety of natural and social phenomena through the use of spacecraft and technology. We use or dispute information about the surrounding reality, which is stored in various databases. All this requires a more detailed definition of the characteristics of property rights in GIS, the preparation of a standard of proof and mechanisms for their protection against illegal use. Publication of maps, aerial and satellite images on public access sites does not mean that they do not have a copyright holder who can, at his own discretion, authorize or prohibit others from using the result of their work. The absence of a ban by law is not considered consent. To protect against unreasonable claims, where spatial data obtained using a GIS (satellite image, cartographic image, etc.) is presented as a basis, it is necessary to correctly establish its source of origin, the correctness of storage and the legality of the transfer, taking into account the fact that the right holders are not registered in the Russian Federation.
