Inequitable allocation of rights to exploit sea-bed and marine resources

Other Names:
Discriminatory exploitation of sea-bed resources

It is predicted that not being a signatory to the Law of the Sea Convention might rule out a sea-bed miner of metalliferous ores from certain receivers. Restrictions on the export of high technology for sea-bed mining, and patents protecting the owners of patent rights on parts of deep sea-bed technology, are potential commercial limitations on exploitation of sea-bed resources.
