The space 36,000 kilometers above the Earth, as unlimited as it may seem, is quite a finite resource.

Irrespective of the number of spacecraft orbiting at that far a distance, the transmissions are confined, as per the law of physics, by the radio spectrum that can be operated at the geostationary ring around the Equator. The authorisation to use this spectrum is granted by the States which have applied for these rights through the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), a regulatory body of the United Nations.
