I don't want to best a dead horse here, but if Your car company told you you could only drive down roads that they approved of, everyone would lose their shit.

Or you can only replace parts with one's they manufactured, not aftermarket.

The fcc (and industry Canada) control spectrum management. They have no bearing and equipment outside of how hardware affects the spectrum.

While cell phones have antennas. They just monitor what the modem sets are pushing out. The router issue presents a problem bc the after market settings can alter a modem to broadcast of frequencies allotted for other devices. That's why there are those out there that say this lock down would be good only for chip sets. This would mean they could only broadcast on approved frequencies.

But I thought this was already happening, yo. Wasn't it recently proposed that when you purchase a car, you aren't really buying it, you're licensing it, because, y'know, the patents and software etc that went into it 'n stuff. Fuck, this stuff is so stupid.

Not tracking the auto rumour. Can you find an article that confirms this?
