A very interesting article on the subject was published here:

Babak Shakouri Hassanabadi, "Legal implications of an encounter with extraterrestrial intelligence," in The Space Review, 15 June 2015,

Michael Salla wrote a commentary on the article, which can be found here:

Michael Salla, "Extraterrestrial contact: international law and crimes against humanity," in The Examiner, 20 June 2015,

UPDATE: On 27 June, one week after the article was published, Michael Salla's article was removed from The Examiner, and he was removed as an author. A copy can, however, still be found at:
