Overview

Randolph May is one of the nation's most oft-quoted, widely recognized authorities concerning communications law and policy. In this book, May brings his decades of experience to bear in proposing a radical new communications policy paradigm. The essays in this book demonstrate that the current regulatory regime, especially as administered by an overzealous FCC, is hopelessly outdated. Witness the FCC's recent adoption of "net neutrality" mandates to assert regulatory control over Internet providers.
Still based on legacy analog-era techno-functional constructs that establish different regulations for "telephone," "cable," "satellite," "broadcasting," and "wireless" companies, the existing policies no longer makes sense in a digital world in which convergence and competition characterize the marketplace. Consumers are ill-served. And important constitutional values, especially free speech rights, are compromised.
In A Call for a Radical New Communications Policy, May offers bold proposals for reforming our nation's communications policies in accordance with free market and constitutionalist principles - in other words, he offers a clear roadmap for a new free-speech friendly Digital Age Communications Act.
