Obama's Antitrust Enforcement:
T-I-E Industry under "Rigorous" Review
Relaxed to zero antitrust enforcement for the telecommunications-information-entertainment industry are over for the foreseeable future. Mega mergers will be dead on arrival, and while deals that seek approval will risk rejection and/or the imposition of stringent conditions following intense and rigorous review.
Join this webinar for an inside glimpse of the winds of change sweeping through the Department of Justice, and specifically the Antitrust Division under the proactive leadership of Christine Varney, the Federal Trade Commission, the Federal Communications Commission, and the US Congress.

In fact the new era is already under way, with inquiries aimed specifically at the telecommunications sector, e.g., telephone and wireless companies, cable TV multiple system operators, and equipment manufacturers, to prevent or regulate so-called anticompetitive agreements, e.g., service provider-equipment tie-ins, that MAY be designed to raise prices and reduce consumer access and choice.
