Who owns the moon?

Asked by ibstubro (9272 points ) December 15th, 2013

China recently became the third country to steer a spacecraft on the moon.

The third, behind the USA and Russia.

If a new technology made transport of materials to/from the moon to Earth cheap and easy, how would ownership, rights and jurisdiction be established?

Would it be more civilized and orderly than the American Gold Rush?
