The outcome of the 2016 US Presidential and Congressional election leaves much at stake for the telecom, media, and tech (TMT) sector.

Please join TMT practice leader Andy Lipman for a complimentary post-election TMT industry overview. Fresh off the November 8 electoral decision, Andy will explore the likely influence of President-Elect Trump and new Congress on the legal, antitrust, and regulatory landscape of issues affecting the TMT sector. Andy will examine the likely scenarios that the industry will face as well as the consequences of the election results on the makeup of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), US Department of Justice, federal courts, and other relevant government agencies.

Topics will include:

  • Future of FCC Chairman Wheeler’s agenda
  • Competition policy and DOJ/FCC antitrust scenarios in the TMT sector
  • Internet and net neutrality impact, including zero rating, broadband discrimination, and interconnection
  • Spectrum policy, including the pending broadcast auction and future spectrum auctions
  • Special access/BDS services and set top box regulation
  • Broadband internet privacy/data security
  • Future spectrum policy
  • TV, radio, and cable media ownership limits and regulation
