New Media Control with Copyright Law

Reason.org has a piece called The Myth of Media Deregulation about Congressional hearings on the consolidation of radio stations, and this caught my eye: "In the past five years alone, an emerging alternative to mainstream radio -- Internet broadcasting -- was nearly smothered by new rules imposed not by the FCC, but by the Copyright Office. Some last-minute legislation softened the injury, but still left many Netcasters with legitimate complaints."

Copyright, spectrum and wi-fi questions and regulations, backed by the same big media that say they want deregulation of the media, are, according the Reason, having the effect of choking new media choices. And Reason speculates that the Congressional hearings won't address the issues mentioned above that have a direct effect on media consolidation.
