Luxembourg's new law on the exploration and use of space resources
This law will come into force on August 1, 2017.
It explicitly states
"Les ressources de l’espace sont susceptibles d’appropriation
en conformité avec le droit international"
and it "establishes the procedures for authorizing and supervising space exploration missions".

As Planetary Resources have formulated it in their latest press release
"Luxembourg is the first European country to have a legal framework
recognising the right to space-based resources
that they have extracted in compliance with existing international law,
most notably the 1967 Outer Space Treaty."
