Space Law and space settlement
I recognize 2 useful theories of property: A pragmatic theory equating ownership with control, and an ethical theory where property derives from work of the hand and sweat of the brow. Neither of these needs a sovereign State. A State involved in the picture may act to align control in line with or against property as described by the ethical theory. Absent a State on the scene law tends to devolve to whatever person or persons are able to organize and effect, by force of arms, what they see as right.

Absent a State declaring sovereignty, an international recognition of what constitutes piracy and universal jurisdiction against pirates would be useful.
