Some of you may say, “of course God owns it”. I personally believe in God. God created all of the natural things in the universe. But he gave us the right to claim ownership on his creations. The flower on your frontyard is one, the grass at the backyard, and so on. But nobody has claimed ownership of the sun, until a woman from Spain did it – legally.
It’s sounds weird, absurd, ridiculous and out of this world, no pun intended. But it’s true.
Agence France-Presse reported that:
Angeles Duran, 49, told the online edition of daily El Mundo she took the step in September after reading about an American man who had registered himself as the owner of the moon and most planets in our Solar System.
Although, she’s asking for fee if anyone wants to use the sun. Not really clear as to what type of “use” her documents is talking about.
Duran, who lives in the town of Salvaterra do Mino, said she now wants to slap a fee on everyone who uses the sun and give half of the proceeds to the Spanish government and 20 percent to the nation’s pension fund.
She would dedicate another 10 percent to research, another 10 percent to ending world hunger—and would keep the remaining 10 percent herself.
A lot of people may label the woman as “crazy”, but legally I think she’s doing the right thing, although it may take a lot of convincing before anybody would take the act seriously, including asking for a ‘fee for every use of the sun’.
