Communications Act of 1934

Navigation:  Home > Communications Law > Communications Act of 1934



The Communications Act empowers the FCC, among other things, to issue, revoke or modify broadcasting licenses, determine the location of stations, regulate the equipment used by stations, adopt such regulations as may be necessary to carry out the provisions of the Communications Act and impose certain penalties for violation of its regulations. FCC regulations also restrict the ownership of stations and cable operations in certain circumstances, and regulate the practices of network broadcasters, cable providers and competing services. The 1934 Act specifically mandated that the FCC would act in the interest of the "public convenience, interest, or necessity."
