ABSTRACT
The article offers suggestions on the issues that need to be considered by the management of XM Satellite Radio Inc. and Sirius Satellite Radio Inc. (SSRI) in their plan to merge in the U.S. It is accounted that both companies need to persuade the Justice Department or the Federal Trade Commission that the market for radio and music-delivery services is big and that the merger will not produce a consumer-harming reduction in competition.
