Yes, GSM is licensed spectrum in most parts of the world and you need permission from the wireless regulator. However, there is GSM spectrum available for unlicensed use in the Netherlands, Mexico and, if I remember correctly, Sweden. Of course, this does not mean that there are no rules governing such use in those areas and the in-country wireless regulators will have details. Elsewhere GSM spectrum tends to be the reserve of operators who have paid large sums for the privilege of use, although it's sometimes possible to secure a license for very limited use in R&D.

Concerning Build a GSM network, aren't there regulation you need to follow? Or can you actually give yourself "carrier independence" anywhere?
