Is it necessary or not?

Do you think it is a necessity to have your own mantis satellite camera? I think it would be cool to be able to take pictures from your own satellite. It's like beyond reality. Although I know that even now it is possible to receive satellite photos with the desired coordinates. But you must admit that this is a little different. What do you think?

Pretty expensive to ask one of the space agencies to launch a personal satellite for ya, even if it’s a cube sat piggy-backed with a bunch of other cubesats.

"There never was a good war, or a bad peace."
" launch a personal satellite for ya"

and are you going to be responsible for cluttering the sky and any resulting accidents?

And before you say that that is the responsibility of those who put it there in the first place - that would be you.

Here is the applicable law on damage caused by a spacecraft:

Convention on International Liability for Damage Caused by Space Objects
The Liability Convention was considered and negotiated by the Legal subcommittee from 1963 to 1972. Agreement was reached in the General Assembly in 1971 ( resolution 2777 (XXVI)), and the Convention entered into force in September 1972. Elaborating on Article 7 of the Outer Space Treaty, the Liability Convention provides that a launching State shall be absolutely liable to pay compensation for damage caused by its space objects on the surface of the Earth or to aircraft, and liable for damage due to its faults in space. The Convention also provides for procedures for the settlement of claims for damages.
