That's covered under trespassing laws.
> Or let's say I operated a TV station on channel 37 that was allocated to you but you terminate my operating contract. So I lease/erect a new transmitter and continue broadcasting on channel 37.
That's covered under FCC regulations on use of public spectrum.
AFAIK there's no law covering the use of what party X considers their 32
bit numbers (assigned by party A) by party Y.
