We got there first. Does that mean we own it?

No.

There is some international agreement to share it for 'the peepuls of earth'.

Kinda like Antarctica. BSW

We were only granted a 10 mile radius around each lander site to claim as our own.  The rest is still up for grabs.

As soon as someone else gets there, I'd say that we kinda do ;)

The Moonmen own the moon…

Whoever gets there first will own it.

Nobody has actually gotten there.

"You can't claim it, we live here!"
"Well do you have a flag?"
"No, but.."
"No flag, no country!"

Back on-topic, whoever can project enough power into space will control the moon.

I don't think so, but I'm sure we could have pulled salvage law.

IIRC the Soviets put something there first though.

We don't own it but we do lease it from our alien overlords.  We have a secret base there with advanced nukes and all of the other technology we reversed engineered at area 51.

Besides, if we owned it and one day it crashed into the Earth we'd be liable.

You only own what you can defend, and we can't even visit right now.  Hell, the optimistic estimate is 10 years and $4 billion we don't have to get back.
