Liberty vs. Leviathan

Chronicling Liberty's battle against Leviathan

Leviathan knocking at your door?

From Wired we learn that you can’t say “no” to the FCC’s knock at your door.  Based on the Communications Act of 1934 the FCC claims the right to enter your home to inspect any devices that use RF (radio frequency) energy.  Got a wireless router or cordless phone in your house? Refusal “…can carry a harsh financial penalty.”  One expert notes such a scenario is a stretch, an FCC spokesman, however, confirms the claim.  See the FAQ in the FCC Inspection Fact Sheet for the details of your servitude.

    These things have a habit of “stretching” all the way to our living rooms and bedrooms.
