The opposite of "beating a dead horse" would be gently treating a live horse, so here it is.
In July 2010 this was in Broadcast Engineering Mag
The FCC has proposed new rules that would allow legal, unlicensed operation of TV-band wireless microphones by anyone at powers below 50mW. We are not likely to see these rules adopted for several months. In the meantime, the FCC is allowing operation of wireless microphones below 50mW by anyone on an unlicensed basis, under temporary waivers.

NOTE the part about "temporary waivers." I want mine.
A wireless mic is a low power transmitter with a mic attached. Any part 15 station is a low power transmitter with a mic attached. A line input to a transmitter connects other mics to the transmitter, included recordings made from microphones in a recording studio.
All part 15 stations are wireless microphones and here's your waiver. Have fun.
