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 of our most complex legal regimes, blending features of administrative law, antitrust law, and constitutional law, among others. 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 should we regulate the content moderation practices of large platforms? How do copyright and accessibility concerns interact with video content platforms? And how do prior regulatory scheme inform modern legal practices? 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.
