Woman Sues eBay For Not Letting Her Sell The Sun She Owns!

This is going viral everywhere! And it’s absolutely no joke. Maria Duran successfully bought the sun and registered it under her name at a notary office in Spain 2010. Duran managed to sell about 600 parcels of the sun before eBay took down her operation, therefore she took the matter to court.
EBay surprisingly tried to settle the matter out of court but Duran didn’t accept the deal. Duran is still waiting for her earned money from eBay, which are about £7,500. Duran said “I am not a stupid person and I know the law”, and aiming at eBay’s seller agreement policy which she think she has not violated. Here is a picture of her “hot property” document.
Duran is obviously taking advantage of the UN’s Outer Space Treaty, which forbids an independent nation from owning a heavenly body, but not an individual. Duran got her inspiration from a U.S. entrepreneur who registered planets and the moon under his name in 2010 as well as 2011. The guy made about $10 million by selling land on the moon, Mars, Mercury and even Venus.
Stay tuned, we are still waiting for the final result from this case. We are pretty excited to see what the jury will come up with!
