US says no billboards in space

ABC News (article)

...For instance, outsized billboards deployed by a space company into low Earth orbit could appear as large as the moon and be seen without a telescope, the FAA said. Big and bright advertisements might hinder astronomers.

Usually I am against the government saying no to something, especially when the FAA doesn't really have the authority to enforce such a law. But really, I think billboards in space, which can be seen by the naked eye on earth, should not be allowed.
