Who Gets A Dead Man's Gold? The Dilemma Of Lottery Winnings Payable To A Decedent's Estate, M. Eldridge Blanton Dec 1993

Who Gets A Dead Man's Gold? The Dilemma Of Lottery Winnings Payable To A Decedent's Estate, M. Eldridge Blanton

University of Richmond Law Review

This article addresses the federal estate tax and federal income tax consequences of lottery winnings which flow to the estate of a decedent or, alternatively, directly to the decedent's beneficiaries. State income tax and state death tax considerations must also be taken into account. With respect to these secondary implications, this article draws largely upon the Code of Virginia and the relevant sections of Virginia's income tax and estate tax statutes. Some references will be made to the possibility of contrary statutory treatment in other states, but primary reliance will be upon Virginia law.

Discounting Property Values At Death, Neil E. Harl Dec 1993

Discounting Property Values At Death, Neil E. Harl

Agricultural Law Digest

The idea that property values can be discounted at death for a minority interest and for non-marketability is well established. Although discounting cannot be applied in addition to any reduction in value from special use valuation of land, discounting of corporate stock may produce a lower stock value than claiming special use valuation on the corporation -owned land.

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.

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 ...


Reinventing Rate Regulation, Nicholas W. Allard Dec 1993

Reinventing Rate Regulation, Nicholas W. Allard

Federal Communications Law Journal

One of the fundamental purposes of the 1992 Cable Act was to bring about a reduction in consumer cable prices by eliminating the ability of cable companies to charge monopoly rates. While the goal may have been to decrease rates, complaints have poured into Congress claiming that since the passage of the Act, rates have actually increased. The Author explores the Act's goal of reintroducing effective competition while reregulating cable rates in the interim. He examines the details of the regulation and concludes by discussing the options that should be considered by Congress and the FCC when reevaluating the ...

The Cable-Telco Cross-Ownership Prohibition: First Amendment Infringement Through Obsolescence, Michael G. Oxley Dec 1993

The Cable-Telco Cross-Ownership Prohibition: First Amendment Infringement Through Obsolescence, Michael G. Oxley

Federal Communications Law Journal

Since 1970, the FCC has prohibited all telephone companies from providing video programming in their local service areas. The primary rationale behind this prohibition was to promote the cable industry. Since 1984, however, the cable industry has seen tremendous growth with very little competition. New technology and market demands have now necessitated a reevaluation of the ban on cable-telco cross-ownership. The Author argues that with the changes that have occurred in the marketplace, the ban is now both an invalid prior restraint and an infringement on commercial expression and thus a violation of the First Amendment rights of telephone companies ...


Shifting Foundations: The Regulation Of Telecommunications In An Era Of Change, Andrew C. Barrett Dec 1993

Shifting Foundations: The Regulation Of Telecommunications In An Era Of Change, Andrew C. Barrett

Federal Communications Law Journal

The recent developments in the telecommunications industry represent to many the birth of the multimedia world of the future that will make available new interactive services, computer and voice applications, and programming choices. The advancements with wireless technology may also make personal communications services (PCS) a major competitor with the local telephone industry. The ramifications of these developments will depend heavily on the regulatory directions that the government selects. The Author, as Commissioner of the FCC, begins his discussion by analyzing the recent business mergers and the motivations behind them. He then reviews the 1992 Cable Act, suggesting that while ...
