In this paper, a cognitive radio (CR) scenario comprised of a secondary interference channel (IC) and a primary point-to-point link (PPL) is studied, when the former interferes the latter. In order to satisfy a given rate requirement at the PPL, typical approaches impose an interference temperature constraint (IT).When the PPL transmits multiple streams, however, the spatial structure of the interference comes into play. In such cases, we show that spatial interference shaping constraints can provide higher sum-rate performance to the IC while ensuring the required rate at the PPL. Then, we extend the interference leakage minimization algorithm (MinIL) to incorporate such constraints. An additional power control step is included in the optimization procedure to improve the sum-rate when the interference alignment (IA) problem becomes infeasible due to the additional constraint. Numerical examples are provided to illustrate the effectiveness of the spatial shaping constraint in comparison to IT when the PPL transmits multiple data streams.
