ABSTRACT
The article reports on the fight of Comcast Corp. (CC) against the cable-ownership limits which were set by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the U.S. CC is said as the only cable operator who worries that a transaction involving cable subscribers could create an impact into cable ownership caps enforced by FCC. CC sees the ownership limits as unnecessary and judicially unsustainable.
