There is a legal issue, but it has little to do with the physical
aspects of the antennae unless of course it becomes contravenes local
bylaws for height, stability, looks, or interferes with someone else's

be pumped through an unlicensed frequency. There are still limitations
even if you do have a license for a frequency.
