ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision of the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to block the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) enforcement of new cable leased-access rules to cable operators on May 29, 2008 in Cincinnati, Ohio. FCC believed that the new rates will produce zero revenue and will cut rates by 75%. Rates in the payment of third-party programmers to lease time on cable systems are the reasons why the cable industries went to court.
