The author does not understand the world frequency management system.  ITU licenses nothing and has no authority.  ITU Member States retain ALL authority through their individual national sovereignty.  Member States agree to behave in their mutual best interests though the mechanism of the ITU Constitution, Convention, and annexed regulations, which all have treaty status in binding signatory nations.

More information is available in the ITU Constitution and Convention: http://www.itu.int/pub/S-CONF-PLEN-2011/en (download your favorite language edition).  A general description of the process, with special emphasis on the amateur services, is in:  http://www.iaru.org/satellite/IARUSATSPEC_REV15.6.pdf.

I hope this helps.
