FCC’s Warrantless Household Searches Alarm Experts

Except from story:


"You may not know it, but if you have a wireless router, a cordless phone, remote car-door opener, baby monitor or cellphone in your house, the FCC claims the right to enter your home without a warrant at any time of the day or night in order to inspect it.

That’s the upshot of the rules the agency has followed for years to monitor licensed television and radio stations, and to crack down on pirate radio broadcasters. And the commission maintains the same policy applies to any licensed or unlicensed radio-frequency device."

Ain't this a whole can of worms for our members? The FCC is flexing its muscles to see how far they can push to control someones electronics. Yup, This is the change we can rely on!!

What should be our reaction should an FCC official show up at our homes and just kicks down the door to inspect all our electronic equipment and maybe confiscate some of it because he doesn't believe it is up to the specifications he deems correct? I don't know about any one else on this board but this definitely smacks of way to much big brother in our lives.
