actually, every transmitter (and almost all receivers) are regulated and licensed.
what you think of as wireless is actually licensed under some fairly restrictive terms (low power, antenna limits, no end-user tinkering, must accept all interferance from other devices, etc) in exchange for not requireing that each transmitter be licensed individually by ID, owner and location.
