eldavojohn writes “We’ve had a lot of discussion about what the overturning of FCC v Comcast means for net neutrality, but CommLawBlog argues that net-neut is just the tip of the iceberg as far as the effects of this ruling. In the National Broadband Plan, Local TV broadcasters might be forced to give up their spectrum ‘voluntarily’ to be repurposed for broadband; this decision diminishes the FCC’s authority to cut such deals. Another issue at stake is how this will affect the FCC’s approval of Comcast’s acquisition of NBC.”
