it is essential to understand how the European Union is structured for these purposes almost from the incipient conception of earth observation. In this case, Europe as a whole region is governed under the umbrella of a so-called Directive 2007/2/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 14 March 2007 establishing an Infrastructure for Spatial Information in the European Community (INSPIRE) as a law instrument embracing the remote sensing paradigm as far as spatial data infrastructure is concerned. This law instrument proves that there is a global will to smooth satellite commercial applications. Therefore, law instruments should prove that my statement becomes a reality and there is not only a wish and a public effort from an institutional level to smooth and harmonize satellite paradigms between States but also a current gathering private corporations and individuals. In that sense, I did not bring this reference up until now but is worth to refer to the initiative known as the “Global Earth Observation System of Systems Data Sharing Principles”3, hereinafter GEOSS. The INSPIRE Directive entered into force on 15 May 2007 and embraces 34 environment related topics in the field of spatial data.
