Re: FCCs removes rules forcing cable sell content to Sat &Telcos
I agree that they shouldn't have been allowed to merge but how do you see this as a creation of government?!?! Do you somehow think that if government wasn't involved in the process at all they wouldn't have merged? This is clearly a creation of big business... not government.
Certainly there is a conflict of interest when distributors merge with/buy out content creators. This rule removal is anti-consumer as the conglomerates can now exploit this conflict of interest to hinder competition. The way to handle this is to restrict infrastructure companies (Time Warner, Verizon, Comcast, AT&T, etc.) to only providing a pipe, not allow the selling of content.
