"Touch has not been authorized as required by the rules of the Federal Communications Commission. Touch is not, and may not be, offered for sale or lease, or sold or leased, until authorization is obtained."
That is the message at the bottom of the Touch information page. What on earth does that mean? Why does the Federal government need to regulate a peripheral for a video game system?
The FCC generally regulates TV/Radio and the like---not video games as far as I knew. From their website was this description:
"The Federal Communications Commission regulates interstate and international communications by radio, television, wire, satellite, and cable in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and U.S. territories. An independent U.S. government agency overseen by Congress, the commission is the United States' primary authority for communications laws, regulation and technological innovation."
I'm not looking to start a big anti-government thread, but I am genuinely confused as to why this is necessary.
