ABSTRACT
The article reports that the National Cable & Telecommunications Association (NCTA) in the U.S. will sue the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) if the FCC did not suspend by December 21, 2007 its enforcement of a new rule that nullifies every exclusive service contract between a cable operator and an apartment-building owner. The NCTA said that cable operators have already made substantial investments in apartment facilities.
