The telecommunications industry (including internet-related services) is one of the largest and most influential sectors of the economy. It is also the site of one our most complex legal regimes, blending features of administrative law, antitrust law, and constitutional law, among others. How should we regulate the interconnections between the networks that make telephone and internet communication possible? How should we allocate scarce spectrum resources? Should we require internet service providers to comply with net neutrality rules? What, if anything, should government do to ensure media representation of diverse voices? How do copyright concerns interact with broadcast regulation? The answers to these questions directly impact the structure of the telecommunications industry. More fundamentally, these questions implicate matters of distribution, efficiency, fairness, monopoly power, and the structure of government. This course examines these issues through a study of some of the foundational questions and modern conflicts in domestic (U.S.) telecommunications law and internet policy.
