Communications Daily – ICLE Director of Innovation Policy Kristian Stout was quoted by Communications Daily in a story about efforts to change the rules for low-Earth-orbit satellites. You can read full piece here.

Between “inertia” in the ITU process and opposition from geostationary orbit (GSO) operators, building support for the FAI will be difficult, acknowledged Kristian Stout, director-innovation policy, International Center for Law & Economics (ICLE). At the same time, it’s helped by not being about only American NGSO operators. Nations interested in entering low earth orbit (LEO) space will be sensitive that their space companies will favor EPFD rules changes, he said.

ICLE — along with Amazon’s Kuiper, New America’s Open Technology Institute and the Digital First Project — make up the FAI-advocating Alliance for Satellite Broadband (see 2310310039).
