This course is restricted to upper division students only.
This course examines the rationales for, and structures of, regulating broadcasting, cable and telecommunications. We will concentrate on entry controls (the need for licenses or franchises); economic controls (such as price controls or required interconnection); content controls (e.g. prohibition of indecency in broadcasting between 6 AM and 10 PM); and finish with a regulation that is a bit of both economic and content control (net neutrality).
