A Spanish woman has filed a lawsuit against eBay for the right to sell the Sun, and that’s the star, rather than the newspaper.


 Ángeles Durán from Galicia is claiming 10 thousand euros from the on-line auction site, after it blocked her attempts to sell bits of the Sun on eBay’s Spanish and Italian sites.

According to Durán, eBay blocked the sale on the grounds that the Sun “is not tangible and can’t be sold.” She insisted: “It is a real product.” She’s now taken the matter to a court in Madrid where the first hearing will take place next week!

Durán’s claim surrounds the fact that five years ago she got a document from a notary stating she was indeed “owner of the Sun, type G2 star, which lies at the centre of the solar system, at an average distance from the Earth of 149,600,000 kilometres.” She claims all of the proceeds from her Sun sales will go to “a child with mobility difficulties and other charitable ends.”
