FCC Levies $1 Million Fine for RF Interfering Devices
The FCC has proposed a $1 million fine against a company for selling unauthorized RF devices. The commission issued a Notice of Apparent Liability against Behringer USA for violating equipment authorization rules.

"The Commission concluded that Behringer apparently violated the FCC’s rules by
marketing in the United States at least 50 models of unauthorized digital audio devices. The rules require that these devices be tested and verified compliant with FCC technical standards prior to marketing them in the United States," the NAL notice stated.

The FCC said that Behringer marketed the unlicensed devices for more than five years, and for nearly a year after being put on notice of the FCC’s investigation, netting a substantial amount of money in the process.
