Published as a chapter in Harmful Interference in Regulatory Perspective: Legal Rules for Interference-Free Radio Communication: 3rd Luxembourg Workshop on Space and Satellite Communication Law, Mahulena Hofmann (editor), Baden-Baden, Germany: Nomos Verlagsgesellschaft and Hart Publishing, 2015, pp. 87–100.
Interference issues in the context of satellite communications can, in principle, be tackled with legal means from a variety of angles, due to the multifaceted character of both interference and satellite communications as a sector. From that perspective, the present contribution addresses the most important regulatory instruments available to address the particular aspects of satellite communications related to their usage of outer space, and represents a first summary effort to evaluate their particular scope, approach, and general effectiveness.
