In Ruling the Waves and other books that discuss the history of radio it explains that in Europe radio was far to important to be left to the private sector it had to be run by the government. Ever since the navy took over radio in 1917 (nationalize American Marconi) it was also felt that it needed the government to mind radio. Of course the act really only applies to broadcast stations, which IMHO are dinosaurs anyway.
