Governing and regulating the use of communication satellites and their signals is becoming increasingly difficult for governments and multilateral organizations. This article takes forward the question arising from the characterization of satellites as `trade routes in the sky' (Price, 1999), as to whether it is more appropriate to look for regional themes and models for state intervention rather than a global system of governance.
