The book, released by ABA Publishing and the Section of Antitrust Law, represents an important and useful resource for communications practitioners who seek an introduction to antitrust law as well as for antitrust lawyers and others who find themselves thrust into the telecom thicket.
The Handbook explores the fundamental economic underpinnings of communications networks that make substantive analysis of antitrust issues in this sector unique and challenging before it transitions to a discussion of substantive antitrust law related to the communications industries, including mergers, joint ventures and restraints of trade. The book includes a thorough treatment of consumer protection issues in the communications industries, with updates addressing the evolving treatment of consumer protection and privacy issues in the online space. It also contains a comprehensive and readable antitrust-oriented discussion of the Net neutrality/open Internet debate pertaining to broadband Internet access practices.
Individual chapters of Telecom Antitrust Handbook draw upon the expertise of members of the Section of Antitrust Law, the leading professional organization for antitrust and competition law, trade regulation, consumer protection and economics. The section’s more than 7,660 members include attorneys and nonlawyers from private law firms, in-house counsel, nonprofit organizations, consulting firms, federal and state government agencies as well as judges, professors and law students.
