The Telecommunications Act Of 1996, Thomas G. Krattenmaker Nov 1996

The Telecommunications Act Of 1996, Thomas G. Krattenmaker

Federal Communications Law Journal

The author discusses the primary motivating factors behind the 1996 Telecommunications Act, examines how these factors influenced the final law, and critiques the Act by examining whether it is likely to advance public interest goals. Congress designed the Act to address two problems: "technological convergence" and "legal balkanization." The Act attempts to remedy these problems by: (1) tearing down entry barriers so that legal balkanization no longer stands in the path of technological convergence; (2) changing the mandate of the FCC from deciding who should enter the market to monitoring the conditions under which entry takes place in order to …


Hostile Tender Offers For Companies Holding Licenses Issued By The Federal Communications Commission, Stephen F. Sewell Nov 1996

Hostile Tender Offers For Companies Holding Licenses Issued By The Federal Communications Commission, Stephen F. Sewell

Federal Communications Law Journal

When a tender offer to acquire a company is made, those making the tender offer will have to overcome a number of regulatory hurdles. The number of hurdles multiply, however, when the offer is hostile and the target company holds licenses issued by the FCC. The article sketches the FCC's response to hostile tender offers for companies holding FCC licenses, specifically discussing the Commission's adoption of procedures in 1985 to address hostile tender offers. While these provisions provided needed clarification, the authority of the FCC to implement these provisions and the effectiveness of them as a matter of policy have …


Reconsidering Retransmission Consent: An Examination Of The Retransmission Consent Provision (47 U.S.C. § 325(B)) Of The 1992 Cable Act, Charles Lubinsky Nov 1996

Reconsidering Retransmission Consent: An Examination Of The Retransmission Consent Provision (47 U.S.C. § 325(B)) Of The 1992 Cable Act, Charles Lubinsky

Federal Communications Law Journal

This article examines the legislative and economic history of the retransmission consent provision in the 1992 Cable Act. Retransmission consent provisions in the 1992 Cable Act allow broadcasters to enter into negotiations with cable operators regarding retransmission of their broadcast signal. The 1992 Cable Act requires broadcasters to choose between retransmission consent and must-carry provisions every three years. The first election period ended in October 1996 and a new election period begins January 1, 1997. Retransmission consent has had a noticeable effect on the evolution of cable television broadcasting, although it is arguably unclear whether retransmission consent has addressed the …


The Legislative History Of Senator Exon's Communications Decency Act: Regulating Barbarians On The Information Superhighway, Robert Cannon Nov 1996

The Legislative History Of Senator Exon's Communications Decency Act: Regulating Barbarians On The Information Superhighway, Robert Cannon

Federal Communications Law Journal

Among the most visible and controversial provisions of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 have been those of an amendment to the larger act known as the Communications Decency Act. This article critically examines the legislative history of this amendment, creating a record of both official and unofficial sources. The article also notes the relevance of the legislative history as demonstrating both the unconstitutionality and the practical inefficacy of the statute.


Funding Fairness: Public Investment, Proprietary Rights And Access To Health Care Technology, William M. Sage Nov 1996

Funding Fairness: Public Investment, Proprietary Rights And Access To Health Care Technology, William M. Sage

Faculty Scholarship

In her accompanying Article, "Public Research and Private Development: Patents and Technology Transfer in Government-Sponsored Research," Professor Rebecca Eisenberg suggests that federal technology transfer policies should be reexamined in light of actual experience with patented technologies. Indeed, the relationship among federal research funding, patent law, and medical innovation has become more complicated in the years since the passage of the Bayh-Dole Act. Rising health care spending despite slowing overall economic growth has fostered the development of private sector managed care, has led to cutbacks in government support for both research and clinical services, and has increased the percentage of uninsured …
