All About Cable and Broadband (formerly All About Cable) is a forward-looking, comprehensive survey of the law at every level as it applies to cable networks and their television systems, to cable's satellite competitors, and to the convergence of these technologies with the broadband Internet and digital telephony. Cited by the Supreme Court in Turner Broadcasting v. Federal Communications Commission, All About Cable and Broadband provides a comprehensive guide for entrepreneurs and attorneys on a broad range of topics, including: content regulation; horizontal and vertical ownership; interactive television; franchise transfer; pole attachments for information services; rate regulation; access to multiple-dwelling units; broadcast signal carriage; effective competition; subscriber privacy rights; access channels; theft of service; copyright; preemption; and conflict law. Additionally, the treatise addresses the new universe of questions raised by the proliferation of wireless devices.
