Which courts? I seriously have no idea what you're talking about

or makes a big pile of money with a discovery
This is part of the reason I don't think any venture would be successful. I fail to see how they could possibly make a big pile of money from this. It's also why a ban on acquiring territory in other planets is probably not a huge impediment. There's very little to gain from claiming territory and cooperation is likely the only viable way something like this would succeed (everyone would collectively agree to share the inevitable losses that result).
