Federal Communications Commission's Enforcement Bureau Issues Protective Order Regarding Applications of Comcast Corp. and Time Warner Cable Inc. and AT&T, Inc. and DIRECTV

Federal Communications Commission's Enforcement Bureau issues protective order regarding applications of Comcast Corp. and Time Warner Cable Inc. and also AT&T, Inc. and DIRECTV. For consent to assign or transfer control of licenses and authorizations, MB Docket No. 14-57 and MB Docket No. 14-90, respectively. About four weeks ago, numerous content companies filed an Application for Review challenging Media Bureau orders. In that Application for Review, they argued that the Bureau did not provide sufficient protection to highly sensitive proprietary commercial information contained in the companies' affiliation and distribution agreements with Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Charter, AT&T, and DIRECTV. The agency's leadership, however, did not allow the Commission to resolve that Application for Review. Instead, in a highly irregular maneuver, the Media Bureau issued an Order on Reconsideration on November 4, 2014, rejecting the arguments in the Application for Review. Moreover, it modified the protective orders applicable to these proceedings to take away the content companies' due process rights. Specifically, prior to November 4, 2014, no party could access highly sensitive information while an objection to such disclosure remained under review by the Commission or by a court--a policy consistent with prior Commission practice. Under the modified protective order, however, parties now may obtain access to information five business days after the Bureau rejects an objection. It was not given any advance notice that the Bureau was planning to issue these decisions responding to the Application for Review.
