El tweet del “trabajo de tiempo completo” de Elon Musk fue divertido, pero reveló una verdad brutal que la mayoría de la gente no admite

Esta es una historia sobre Elon Musk, SpaceX, Twitter y una verdad difícil. Si te gusta, creo que también te gustará mi eBook, Elon Musk tiene grandes planes, lo que puedas Descargalo gratis aqui.

Nuestra historia comienza con algo que Musk tuiteó en respuesta a un informe de un periodista sobre el litigio SpaceX-Amazon sobre los esfuerzos para construir y lanzar satélites con conectividad a Internet de banda ancha.

  • En 2019, Amazon anunció sus planes de ingresar al negocio de satélites de Internet a través de su subsidiaria Kuiper Systems LLC y solicitó a la Comisión Federal de Comunicaciones que operara la compañía en un espectro de frecuencia dedicado.
  • Sin embargo, la FCC había otorgado licencias para este espectro a empresas como SpaceX, OneWeb y otros jugadores hace muchos años. SpaceX y los demás rechazaron la solicitud de Amazon. Esto inició una complicada batalla legal y regulatoria ante la FCC, que continúa hasta el día de hoy.
  • Mientras tanto, SpaceX informa que ahora es casi 1.700 satélites en funcionamiento y 100.000 clientes, y OneWeb supuestamente lo hizo actualmente unos 200 satélites en órbita. Amazon aún no ha lanzado uno.

Todo esto nos lleva a las tres presentaciones más recientes de la FCC en esta batalla en curso que, a su vez, provocó el tweet de Musk:

  • El 19 de agosto, SpaceX presentó su plan para pasar a la próxima generación de sus satélites que alcanzaría 30.000 satélites en total.
  • El 25 de agosto, Amazon pidió a la FCC que rechazara el nuevo plan de SpaceX.
  • Luego, esta semana, SpaceX presentó una respuesta quejándose, entre otras cosas, sobre cuántas objeciones ha presentado Amazon contra SpaceX. Como escribió su abogado:

“Desafortunadamente, la última carta de Amazon es solo la más reciente en sus esfuerzos continuos para frenar la competencia … mientras descuida abordar las preocupaciones de la Comisión sobre el propio sistema de satélites de órbita no geoestacionaria (‘NGSO’) de Amazon.

Si bien Amazon ha esperado 15 meses para explicar cómo funcionaba su sistema, este año, en promedio, ha planteado objeciones a SpaceX aproximadamente cada 16 días.

Eso nos lleva al tweet de Musk, que se produjo en respuesta a un informe de Michael Sheetz que cubría el espacio para CNBC:

“Presentar una acción legal contra SpaceX es * en realidad * su trabajo de tiempo completo”.

Me reí a carcajadas por una segunda lectura de esto. Aunque Jeff Bezos solo se menciona una vez (y ni siquiera por su nombre) en los documentos legales de la FCC que puedo encontrar, todos sabemos a quién se refiere Musk aquí. ¿A la derecha? Al menos eso pienso.

Y a veces es divertido ver a Musk Bezos trollear en Twitter. Realmente parece estar disfrutándolo. Sin embargo, creo que el tweet también contiene una verdad brutal, caótica y fea.

Suponiendo que esta es una excavación muy poco velada en Bezos, todos sabemos que el trabajo de tiempo completo de Bezos no lo es. Sí, en serio utilizando el sistema legal para defender a Kuiper y, a menudo, contra SpaceX. (Está ocupado estos días montando misiles y dirigiendo al presidente de la junta).

Pero es alguien Trabajo.

¿De quién es el trabajo? Bueno, en su presentación más reciente, SpaceX dice que Amazon “trae habitualmente hasta seis cabilderos y abogados a sus numerosas reuniones con la Comisión a través de SpaceX”.

Mientras tanto, los SpaceX son Satellite Policy Director, quien firmó la última presentación, es un abogado consumado que anteriormente se desempeñó como asesor principal del ex presidente de la FCC y del Congreso.

Y me atrevo a decir, incluso si a la mayoría de la gente no le gusta admitirlo, que nuestro sistema funciona así. De hecho, me atrevería a decir que, en general, es algo bueno.

Porque estamos hablando del lanzamiento de muchos miles de satélites comerciales, una escala sin precedentes, junto con el uso innovador del espectro de frecuencias. Es difícil siquiera pensar en los efectos de segundo y tercer orden junto con el tamaño de la oportunidad.

Por lo tanto, incluso las personas que desean menos gobierno en general podrían estar de acuerdo en que, en este caso, probablemente tenga sentido tener un marco regulatorio sólido.

Por supuesto, puede ser complicado, retrasar, molestar y frustrar. Pero, ¿Cual es la alternativa?

En el extremo, sería una libertad total para todos, donde cualquier empresa podría desestabilizar a cualquier otra empresa y, paradójicamente, evitar que las mejores empresas compitan siquiera.

Los lectores veteranos sabrán que estoy deseando que SpaceX o OneWeb o Amazon o alguna otra compañía, realmente no sé cuál, lograr el objetivo. Lleve el acceso a Internet de banda ancha de alta velocidad a los lugares más remotos.

He visto de primera mano cómo la falta de conexiones de banda ancha puede frenar a las áreas rurales en el siglo XXI. Entonces creo que entiendo la urgencia.

Bueno, no creo necesariamente que Musk estuviera tratando de hacer de todos estos puntos el estado regulatorio, el sistema legal y la innovación. Creo que es más probable que aproveche la oportunidad para volver a tostar a Bezos.

Pero aun así reveló algo importante.

La gente se ha estado quejando de los abogados desde Shakespeare. Maldita sea, me quejo de ella y yo mismo soy un abogado no practicante.

Sin embargo, cuando se trata de actividades comerciales complicadas, es beneficioso tener un sistema legal robusto y complicado. Volver a escribir Otro gran y valiente pensador de una época anterior.podría ser el peor sistema excepto por todos los demás que alguna vez estado intentos.

De todos modos, es el sistema bajo el que vivimos. Y si esto le afecta, sea cual sea el tipo de negocio en el que se encuentre, se alegrará de que el “trabajo real de tiempo completo” de alguien sea ser su abogado ávido.

t

  • Meanwhile, SpaceX reports it now has nearly 1,700 operating satellites launched and 100,000 customers, and OneWeb reportedly has about 200 satellites currently orbiting. Amazon has yet to launch any.
  • n

    All of which brings us to the three most recent FCC filings in this ongoing battle, which in turn prompted Musk's tweet:

    n

      t

    • On August 19, SpaceX filed its plan to move on to the next generation of its satellites, which would reach  30,000 satellites in total.
    • t

    • August 25, Amazon asked the FCC to dismiss SpaceX's new plan.
    • t

    • Then, this week, SpaceX filed a response that complained, among other things, about how many objections Amazon has filed against SpaceX. As its counsel wrote:

    n

    "Amazon's recent missive is unfortunately only the latest in its continuing efforts to slow down competition ... while neglecting to resolve the Commission's concerns about Amazon's own non-geostationary orbit ('NGSO') satellite system.

    n

    ...

    n

    While Amazon has waited 15 months to explain how its system works, it has lodged objections to SpaceX on average about every 16 days this year."

    n

    With that, we reach Musk's tweet, which came in response to a report by Michael Sheetz, who covers space for CNBC:

    n

    "Filing legal actions against SpaceX is *actually* his full-time job."

    n

    n

    I laughed out loud for a second when I read this. Even though Jeff Bezos is only referred to once in the FCC legal documents that I can find (and not even by name), we all know who Musk has to be referring to here. Right? At least I think so.

    n

    And it's amusing to watch sometimes as Musk trolls Bezos on Twitter. He really seems to enjoy it. However, I think there's also a brutal, messy, ugly truth contained within the tweet.

    n

    Assuming this is a very thinly-veiled dig at Bezos, we all know that Bezos's full-time job is not really to use the legal system to advocate for Kuiper, and oHeaven32en against SpaceX. (He's busy these days riding rockets, and executive-chairmaning.)

    n

    But, it is somebody's job.

    n

    Whose job? Well, within its recent filing, SpaceX says Amazon "routinely brings as many as six lobbyists and lawyers to its many meetings with the Commission about SpaceX."

    n

    Meanwhile, SpaceX's director of satellite policy, who signed the latest filing, is an accomplished lawyer who previously worked as a senior advisor to the former FCC chairman and in Congress.

    n

    And that, I venture to say -- even though most people don't like to admit it -- that this is exactly how our system is designed to work. I'd even go so far as to say it's a good thing, all things considered.

    n

    Because, we're talking about the launching of many thousands of commercial satellites -- an unprecedented scale -- along with the groundbreaking use of frequency spectrum. It's difficult even to think through the second and third-order effects, along with the size of the opportunity.

    n

    So, even people who want less government overall might agree that in this case, it probably makes sense to have a strong regulatory framework in place.

    n

    Granted, it can be messy, delaying, annoying, and frustrating. But what's the alternative? 

    n

    At the extreme, it would be a complete free-for-all, in which any company could interfere with any other company, and which paradoxically might discourage the best companies from competing in the first place.

    n

    Long-time readers will know that I am eager for SpaceX, or OneWeb, or Amazon, or some other company--I'm truly agnostic as to which one--to achieve the goal of  bringing high-speed broadband Internet access to the most remote places.

    n

    I've seen first-hand how a lack of broadband access can hold rural areas back in the 21st century. So, I think I understand the urgency.

    n

    Now, I don't necessarily think Musk was trying to make all these points about the regulatory state and the legal system and innovation. I think he's more likely just taking the opportunity to roast Bezos again.

    n

    But he's nevertheless revealed something important.

    n

    Since the time of Shakespeare, people have complained about lawyers. Heck, I complain about them, and I'm a non-practicing lawyer myself.

    n

    Still, when it comes to complicated business endeavors, there's an advantage to having a robust, complicated legal system. To paraphrase  another great and bold thinker of an earlier time, it might just be the worst possible system, except for all those others that have ever been tried.

    n

    Regardless, it's the system we live under. And when you're caught up in it, no matter what kind of business you're running, you'll be glad that somebody's "actual full-time job" is to be your zealous advocate.
