NAB Files Comments Against Satellite Merger
August 13, 2007 at 3:33 PM (PT)
The NAB filed comments with the FCC MONDAY on the XM-SIRIUS merger, reiterating its opposition and summarizing the applicants' argument as "urg(ing) the Commission to (1) ignore controlling Commission and antitrust precedent, (2) disregard long-standing Commission policy against spectrum monopolies, and (3) waive, modify or repeal the Commission’s merger prohibition applicable to the Satellite Digital Audio Radio Service ('satellite DARS'). The Commission should not abandon relevant legal standards, rules and important public policies merely to allow this one merger to proceed."
