    AKA - "other lawmakers."

    Please pay attention to the specific details of the wording written in my posts.

    Judges aren't lawmakers. You should have paid closer attention in civics class. ;)

    Administrative agencies are close. Rules aren't laws, but they implement laws. So you weren't completely wrong. :cool:

    In the end, the issues will be decided by the courts, and as a result, professional legal opinions by subject matter experts do matter, contrary to your earlier assertion. The amateur community has received professional legal advice about the current version of ARPA. That advice clearly enumerates portions of the legislation that will be harmful to the community. ARRL has chosen to ignore that advice. That's unfortunate, but all the amateur opinions in the world don't hold the same weight as a professional attorney. Until another professional attorney, who is a subject matter expert in the issues of private contract and property law, issues an opinion contrary to those written by K1VR and others, there is no valid argument in favor of ARPA. It is fatally flawed, and needs to be repaired to address its flaws before it is passed into law.

    Unless you are a practicing attorney, and a subject matter expert in the type of law ARPA seeks to modify, you are not qualified to state an argument in favor of the legislation. If you doubt that, try to represent someone in a property law dispute in court without a license and see what happens to you. :eek:

    Produce a professional and detailed legal opinion in support of your arguments or go somewhere else.

    That's not how these public forums work.

    There is no requirement to have a law degree to post in these forums.

    Anybody can give their opinion on the bill, the real write up comes when the matter reaches the FCC for insertion in to Part 97.

    Odd response, how is that relevant to the thread at all? ;)

    When you have the kinds of credentials that Fred has, you will be qualified to refute his claims. Until then, questioning his conclusions is meaningless. You can argue about what your doctor says all you want, but you're still not qualified to decide how he treats other patients.

    Until somebody produces an opinion from a qualified professional who is a subject matter expert in the field, there is no valid argument in favor of ARPA.

    As soon as you produce your law degree, then you will be qualified to refute K1VR's critique of the bill. Until then, the only professional written legal opinions on the subject by subject matter experts are against the bill, and they explain why. Your opinion in favor is meaningless.

    Your limited view of this form is equaled by your limited view regarding relevance. But then again you are welcome to your opinion....

    Do you have any thing to say on the topic, or are you just here to troll facts that you dislike?

    Agreed and that's what we will do here moving forward.
