Surveys the basic principles underpinning our nation's telecommunications laws and policies. A focus of the course is broadband policy and, in particular, how past case studies might inform today's broadband policy. We will examine the legal and regulatory treatment of a number of related technologies-from telephony to wireless innovations to the Internet-whose convergence challenges the efficacy of existing laws and established principles. The course will address administrative and statutory law, paying special attention to the design and implementation of the Communications Act of 1934. In addition, the course will address the role played by antitrust, intellectual property and constitutional law (particularly the First Amendment) in shaping our nation's telecommunications landscape. Finally, the course will consider the important role played by state and federal agencies-antitrust enforcers, state public utility commissions and the Federal Communications Commission-in developing and administering our nation's telecommunications laws and policies. Same as LAWS 7241.
