Astroturf Campaigns: Transparency In Telecom Merger Review, Victoria Peng 2016 University of Michigan Law School

Astroturf Campaigns: Transparency In Telecom Merger Review, Victoria Peng

University of Michigan Journal of Law Reform

Large telecommunications companies looking to merge spend millions of dollars in their lobbying efforts to clear regulatory hurdles and obtain approval for their proposed mergers. Corporations such as AT&T, Comcast, and Time Warner use public participation processes as vehicles to influence regulatory decision-making. In the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) merger review context, the notice- and-comment process and public hearings have become fertile breeding grounds for hidden corporate influence. Corporations spend millions on corporate social responsibility programs and call upon nonprofit organizations that receive their largesse to represent their corporate interests as grassroots interests when the FCC seeks public comment ...

Innovations In Mobile Broadband Pricing, Daniel A. Lyons 2016 Boston College Law School

Innovations In Mobile Broadband Pricing, Daniel A. Lyons

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

The FCC’s net neutrality rules sought to limit interference by broadband service providers in markets for Internet-based content and applications. But to do so, the Commission significantly reduced the amount of innovation possible in the broadband service market. Within limits, broadband providers may offer different plans that vary the quantity of service available to customers, as well as the quality of that service. But they generally cannot vary the service itself: with limited exceptions, broadband providers must offer customers access to all lawful Internet traffic, or none at all. This Article explores the way in which this all-or-nothing homogenization ...

Youtube Marketing: Legality Of Sponsorship And Endorsement In Advertising, Katrina Wu 2015 University of San Diego

Youtube Marketing: Legality Of Sponsorship And Endorsement In Advertising, Katrina Wu

Katrina Wu

YouTube endorsement marketing, sometimes referred to as native advertising, is a form of marketing where advertisements are seamlessly incorporated into the video content unlike traditional commercials. The paper categorizes YouTube endorsement marketing into three forms: (1) direct sponsorship where the content creator partners with the sponsor to create videos, (2) affiliated links where the content creator gets a commission resulting from purchases attributable to the content creator, and (3) free product sampling where products are sent to content creators for free to be featured in a video. Examples in each of the three forms of YouTube marketing can be observed ...

Internet Governance Is Our Shared Responsibility, Vinton Cerf, Patrick Ryan, Max Senges 2015 Google Inc; University of Colorado at Boulder; Katholieke Universiteit Leuven

Internet Governance Is Our Shared Responsibility, Vinton Cerf, Patrick Ryan, Max Senges

Patrick T. Ryan

This essay looks at the the different roles that institutions play in the Internet governance ecosystem. We propose a model for thinking of Internet governance within the context of the layered model of the Internet. We use the example of the negotiations in Dubai in 2102 at the World Conference on International Telecommunications to show why it is important for different institutions within the governance system to focus on their areas of expertise (e.g., the ITU, ICANN, and IGF). Several areas of conflict are reviewed, such as the desire to promote more broadband infrastructure (a topic that is in ...

Protecting The Privacies Of Digital Life: Riley V. California, The Fourth Amendment’S Particularity Requirement, And Search Protocols For Cell Phone Search Warrants, William Clark 2015 Boston College Law School

Protecting The Privacies Of Digital Life: Riley V. California, The Fourth Amendment’S Particularity Requirement, And Search Protocols For Cell Phone Search Warrants, William Clark

Boston College Law Review

In 2014, in Riley v. California, the U.S. Supreme Court held that the police must obtain a warrant before searching a cell phone. Since then, lower courts have struggled to determine what scope limitations judges should place on cell phone warrants in order to ensure that these warrants do not devolve into unconstitutional general searches. This Note argues that the Fourth Amendment’s particularity requirement mandates that the government submit search protocols, technical documents that explain the search methods the government will use on the seized device, for cell phone search warrants. This argument is based on the Riley ...

Confidential Sources: The Public Interest In Keeping Secrets, Brian Rogers, Kevin Donovan, Gail Cove, Jamie Cameron, Julian Sher

Jamie Cameron

"Confidential sources: The public interest in keeping secrets What is different about confidential newsgathering sources? Why is it in the public interest to protect these sources, and when is it more important to know who they are? How do shield laws work in the US, and who should set the rules for confidential sources -- the courts or the legislatures?"


Website Accessibility And The Americans With Disabilities Act, Kimberlianne Podlas 2015 University of North Carolina, Greensboro

Website Accessibility And The Americans With Disabilities Act, Kimberlianne Podlas

Kimberlianne Podlas

In recognition of the 25th anniversary of the ADA, this article explores whether and in which ways the ADA applies to websites. As the popularity of online retail, social media, and streaming entertainment has increased, so have complaints that they are inaccessible in violation of the ADA. Indeed, recent lawsuits against Netflix, Scribd, Target, and universities providing free online courses have alleged that websites are “places of public accommodation,” and when they are inaccessible to disabled individuals, violate the ADA. Ultimately, this article concludes that while websites themselves are not directly covered “places of public accommodation,” they often come ...
