Dolly Parton enters 'white space' debate

Keeping abreast of things


Campaigners
trying to get the FCC to delay opening up ‘white space’ spectrum for unlicensed use have got the support of buxom country star Dolly Parton.

Parton, who knows of the need for support, penned a letter to the FCC asking the agency to delay the vote. A delay would mean that the FCC to recognize the entertainment industry's valuable contribution to the cultural life.

She said that if white space was handed over she would not be able  to use a clear, consistent wireless microphone. Her industry relies on wireless technology and is in jeopardy of being irreversibly devastated by the commission's pending decision. Other artists against using white space include Neil Diamond, the Dixie Chicks, Clay Aiken, and Guns N' Roses.

Google CEO Eric Schmidt, Dell founder Michael Dell, and Microsoft founder and former CEO Bill Gates, have all sent letters and made calls to the FCC this week to encourage the agency to move forward with its planned vote.
