Tech Groups: TV Signal Spill-Over Should Be Deemed 'Unlicensed'

New America's Open Technology Institute, joined by Public Knowledge, has told the FCC that broadcasters invocation of their licenses to defend allowing them to extend their broadcast signals to the edges, and perhaps beyond, of their markets is off base.

OTI and company are big backers of using the "white spaces" spectrum between TV stations for wireless broadband, with OTI funder Microsoft heavily engaged in that effort. The more of that spectrum broadcasters get to use for TV, the less is available for wireless broadband, and there's the rub.
