Current FCC regulation of the electromagnetic spectrum hinders the growth of wireless communication technology and fails to make efficient use of an extremely valuable asset. Current policies have failed to keep pace with advancing technology and require a completely new allocation scheme in order to promote growth in the wireless communications industry. This paper proposes a new allocation scheme for spectrum regulation that promotes competition in the marketplace in order to make the most effective use of the physical medium and eliminates unnecessary barriers to entry into the market to promote innovation. Building upon fifty years of property-rights proposals for spectrum allocation, an understanding of the historical events that made regulation a necessity, and effects of liberalized policies in spectrum as well as other industries, led to the creation of an allocation scheme that takes full advantage of the competitive market and minimizes the detrimental effects from antiquated regulation policies. A spectrum lease scheme grants full flexibility of use to leaseholders, yet still maintain minimal governmental control to ensure interference protection.
