The following is a statement from Public Knowledge:

The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) today asked the U.S. Appeals Court for the D.C. Circuit to dismiss its challenge to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) orders approving the use of TV ‘white spaces'.

The following is attributed to Harold Feld, legal director of Public Knowledge:

"We commend NAB for filing to dismiss its court challenge to the FCC's white spaces order. Assuming the court grants the motion, the last potential legal obstacle to the use of this valuable unlicensed spectrum will be removed and the innovations that are just beginning can continue to proceed with new confidence."
