THE NEW SPACE RACE: China outlines position on use of space resources. “Johnson interprets the Chinese stance as seemingly largely aligned with the broader international consensus on the use of space resources. That is, the right to possess and use space resources is not only desirable by space agencies and national governments, but is also permissible under the current international law. Discussion and consideration of the use and legality utilizing space resources has grown in recent years due to advancements in the space sector, the rise of commercial companies and renewed interest in the moon.”

I’ve been saying that for several decades now, so it’s nice to see it becoming a consensus.
