Submission + - Court rejects FCC Cable Subscriber Cap->

olsmeister writes: The U.S. Court of Appeals Friday threw out the FCC's cap on the number of cable subscribers one operator can serve, saying the FCC was "derelict" in not giving DBS its due as a legitimate competitor.

"We agree with Comcast that the 30% subscriber limit is arbitrary and capricious. We therefore grant the petition and vacate the Rule," said the court, which concluded that there was ample evidence of an increasingly competitive communications marketplace and that cable did not have undue control on the programming pipeline.
