I wonder if that's true, or if it works in a way that occupies a "slot" on the hotspot (not the proper term, I know) or in a way that degrades service for other users in any way. If either is true, then I think wi-fi equipment makers will take the view that this is exploiting a flaw in the wi-fi standard, and they will develop new technology to block it, or control access to it (and therefore potentially bill for it.)
