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 …

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 …


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.


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 1992 …


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. …


The Television Violence Act Of 1990: A New Program For Government Censorship?, Julia W. Schlegel Dec 1993

The Television Violence Act Of 1990: A New Program For Government Censorship?, Julia W. Schlegel

Federal Communications Law Journal

The Television Violence Act of 1990 is designed to encourage the networks, the cable industry, and independent stations to reduce the amount of violence currently shown on television. To accomplish this goal, the Act grants a three-year antitrust exemption to the television industry so that it may meet and develop joint standards aimed at reducing the amount of violence currently shown on television. The Act's sponsor, Senator Paul Simon, emphasized that the Act simply encouraged the broadcast industry to set standards; it did not require them to do so. However, in December 1992, when the television industry had still not …

A World Of Regions: America, Europe, And East Asia, Peter J. Katzenstein Oct 1993

A World Of Regions: America, Europe, And East Asia, Peter J. Katzenstein

Indiana Journal of Global Legal Studies

Recent events in world politics are creating a substantial break in the

history of international politics comparable in this century only to the years

1917-22 and 1947-53. With specific reference to Germany and Europe as

well as to Japan and East Asia, this essay argues that these changes in world

politics tend to reinforce a new political regionalism that expresses different

norms, which, in the foreseeable future, are unlikely to be assimilated fully

into one normative global order.

European Integration: Reflections On Its Limits And Effects, William J. Davey Oct 1993

European Integration: Reflections On Its Limits And Effects, William J. Davey

Indiana Journal of Global Legal Studies

One of the principal goals of this journal is to evaluate the impact of the

globalization of law, politics, and markets. This article focuses on the

economic integration of markets in Europe, where one aspect of the

"globalization" process-the process by which laws, national economies, and

political systems are becoming ever more entwined and interdependent-has

occurred to the greatest extent, albeit at a regional level. I will first give an

overview of this process and consider the factors that the European

experience in "regionalization" suggests may limit economic and other forms

of integration at the global level. I will then …
