Hastings Communications and Entertainment Law Journal


This article takes a light-hearted, yet pointed, look at the regulatory policies of the FCC. In particular, the authors discuss seven regulatory axioms that seem to have plagued the Commission in keeping up with communications technology. If the Commission were willing to discard these "antediluvian" maxims, there is hope that the Commission can adapt to the electronic media. To this end, the authors suggest seven modern axioms to replace those that the Commission presently follows.
