FCCThis morning, on behalf of Wiley Rein, I filed a letter encouraging the FCC to issue a formal declaration that, with the final stage rule satisfied, no communications by broadcasters about the reverse auction can violate the Commission’s prohibition on certain auction-related communications.  The Incentive Auction has handcuffed the broadcast television industry in many respects for over a year now, and the continued prohibition on communications serves only to inhibit important business discussions as broadcasters prepare for the repack and post-auction operations.
