Exclusive Service Contracts - Flyer Explaining FCC Ruling May 2009

To IMCC Members,

After we last informed you about the court findings in the recent case with National Cable & Telecommunications Association (NCTA) v. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in regard to Exclusive Service Contracts, many of our members requested a formal explanation/splash piece they could use with clients.

We put together this flyer for your use, explaining how the courts found that the FCC acted within its statutory authority regarding Exclusive Service Contracts, and that Private Cable Operators are still allowed to execute the agreements while cable and telephone companies are not.  Please feel free to use it with anyone who requires greater understanding or confirmation of the recent ruling regarding the FCC.
