Minding the gap(s) in Australian spectrum law

Benoit Pierre Freyens
2010 Telecommunications Journal of Australia  
Achieving efficient spectrum management in the pursuit of the public interest was a key aspect of the legislative reforms enacted through the Radiocommunications Act 1992.  ...  This article argues that efficient spectrum policy can be furthered by crafting additional licensing regimes or expanding the possibilities of existing regimes.  ...  I suggested here that the potential for regime widening in Australia is largely concentrated in the spectrum licensing quadrant.  ...
