Paper Abstract

Remotely sensed data appears in databases in many forms and is used for a wide variety of purposes. Key questions arise in the use of such data bases and imagery such as 'who owns the data,' and 'what is the liability of those who provide the database for others to use.' In America, (where we litigate everything) these are important questions if you are to establish your rights to use remotely sensed data and, of most import, profit from that use. The law in the U.S. is anything but clear. There are however certain guidelines, that are discussed, that give you a better chance at avoiding problems and profiting from your technology.
