Cable Television Subscriber Equipment: Lessons From The Common Carrier Experience, David Alan Nall Dec 1993

Cable Television Subscriber Equipment: Lessons From The Common Carrier Experience, David Alan Nall

Federal Communications Law Journal

Perhaps the most significant changes resulting from the Cable Television Consumer Protection and Competition Act of 1992 will be those affecting equipment on subscriber's premises. The 1992 Cable Act differentiates cable equipment and cable services. The Author discusses the framework of the equipment provisions of the Cable Act, specifically regarding cable equipment rates, cable home wiring, and consumer electronics compatibility. He relates the history of the customer-premises (CPE) unbundling through the Computer II decision and post-Computer II developments, then proposes that the FCC could apply its CPE precedents to cable equipment.


Article Digest Dec 1993

Article Digest

Federal Communications Law Journal

In many communities across the nation cable subscribers depend on government-owned cable television systems for their communication services. This phenomenon may have started out to be fairly insignificant, but as a result of the cable explosion, government ownership of cable systems presents a threat to free expression. Governmental overbuilding and direct competition with private cable service providers have been the subject of unsuccessful First Amendment challenges. The threat of government control of cable systems, though, is potentially dramatic and poses serious First Amendment questions. The Author concludes that private ownership should be encouraged, and public ownership should only be allowed ...

The Reunification Of Contract: The Objective Theory Of Consumer Form Contracts, Michael I. Meyerson May 1993

The Reunification Of Contract: The Objective Theory Of Consumer Form Contracts, Michael I. Meyerson

All Faculty Scholarship

Despite the ubiquitousness of standard form contracts in the world of consumer transactions, there is no consensus as to how these contracts ought to be constructed. Some courts continue to treat form contracts as if they were classically negotiated contracts. Others attempt in a variety of ways to factor in the reality that consumers entering into these contracts are not able to negotiate the terms and almost always sign these documents, which are presented on a take-it-or-leave-it basis, without reading them. This article posits that the cause of this continued confusion over form contracts is due to a basic failure ...

Part II provides a backdrop for the current products liability debate, first by setting out a capsule history of the evolution of the modem products liability regime, and then by explaining the arguments offered by the "first generation" of products liability scholars to justify expanded manufacturer liability. Part II also illustrates the utility of the Products Liability Matrix by locating many of ...
