Cable Television: A Guide to Federal Regulations.
Rivkin, Steven R.
The issuance by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of a comprehensive set of standards to govern cable television's future growth and development has prompted the need for an explanation of the many broad and complex issues covered. This volume, based on research supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation, describes and analyzes laws and regulations applicable to cable television. It is intended to serve as a reference source for state and local decision-makers, the cable industry, the legal community, and interested citizen groups. It assembles the most relevant documents and clarifies their meanings. The guide is in three parts: part 1 discusses the status of federal regulations and outlines FCC rules; part 2 provides details of cable television policies and rules; and part 3 provides a compendium of relevant documents including FCC reports and studies, court decisions, and statements by individuals and organizations concerned with various aspects of cable television.
