Course Description:

P: T504 or consent of the instructor. This course provides a
comprehensive review of the law and public policies in the United
States affecting communications technologies.  It reviews regulation
of telephony, broadcasting, and cable television.  It also examines
various theories and concepts to understand how policy choices 
subject to legal, institutional, political, and economic
constraints  are selected among differing alternatives.  Therefore,
the course not only analyzes the substance of policies but also the
interaction among players in the process of policy making.  Given
the evolution of telecommunications technology towards more
integrated networks, the course also examines emerging legal issues
related to the Internet.
