What's Ahead for U.S. Communications Law? ("Minnesota Law, Presented by Moss & Barnett")
Not so long ago, if you wanted cable television service you had one choice – your local cable company. And if you wanted telephone service, you called your local phone company. Now these different companies compete against one another for your business. Brian Grogan explores whether the laws and regulations governing these providers have kept pace with technology. Will the FCC require that providers allow customers to select shows on an individual basis, rather than as a part of a bundled package? Brian discusses why the State of Minnesota cannot simply mandate that cable providers carry sports networks, why some residents living in apartments and condominiums are prohibited from changing service providers, and more.
