 THE ORDER OF MALTA, SOVEREIGNTY, AND INTERNATIONAL LAW   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
The essential difference between the protocols established by international organizations is that they are not governed by International Law, as are those between States, but by the specific legislation pertaining to those organizations, and agreements between the organization and the State (as with the European Union and non-member States).
Decisions by the International Court of Justice and its predecessor, and by other competent bodies, allow for a more extensive definition of Sovereignty and statehood, one which may be expressly limited in some way, or which may not enjoy the more visible aspects of statehood: territory and population.
Legal dependence in International law may of itself limit Sovereignty, but not destroy it, as is demonstrated by the dependency of certain States within the European Union on financial subsidies from the other member States through the medium of the Brussels commission.

Similarly, in the postal sector, the main demand driver is coming from parcel, junk-mail and courier traffic not necessarily from growth in the number of letters.
