Is cellphone-blocking paint legal?

A company is using nanotech to develop a paint that blocks cell phones (and other forms of RF). Cell phone companies say it's illegal under the FCC rules prohibitting jammers. NaturalNano (the company) responds that since it's paint is passive and not a jammer, it's perfectly legal and outside FCC jurisdiction.

Turns out it's a dang tough question to answer on only five minutes of thought. But you can read my somewhat informed musings at my professional blog (http://www.wetmachine.com) if interested.
