Yes. Although to be fair that’s how the ACMA acts here - like a protection racket for the incumbent operators.

In this scenario though I do kind of get the operators’ concerns. A few new ones have popped up over the last couple of years, like Boom Radio, in order to fill a gap left by BBC as they moved Radio 2 younger. Now they seem to be trying to launch a station to get back the audience they had already abandoned.
