Telecommunications, Broadcasting, and Information: Law, Policy, and Regulation introduces students to basic concepts of economics, law, competition, and regulatory governance, and to the fundamentals of communications and antitrust policy. The anthology addresses the challenges confronting regulators, practitioners, and the public as a result of the convergence of information technologies and examines the impact these technologies have on democracy and quality of life.

Telecommunications, Broadcasting, and Information is divided into three primary chapters. The first is devoted to principles, institutions, and values in the industry. The second focuses on regulation of content, and the third discusses the regulation of technology. Specific topics include:

  • Indecency Regulation
  • Political Speech
  • Interconnection Oversight
  • Network Neutrality
  • Media Ownership
  • The Role of Public and Educational Broadcasting

Short introductions provide contextual background for each of the selected readings.
