DC Cir Eliminates Cable Ownership

My quick read: "We don't believe in regulating cable, we don't understand actual economics, and we don't care what Congress said."

Given that in the U.S., we have achieved near total overlap between MVPDs and broadband access providers, this should prove interesting.

Mind, I make no pretense of being impartial, having been involved with this since 1999.
