Communications Law Overview

Navigation:  Home > Communications Law > Communications Law Overview


Communications law deals largely with the laws governing TV and radio broadcasting. The Communications Act of 1934 created the Federal Communications Act (FCC). The FCC is the federal oversight body, which grants licenses and is the rulemaking body for radio, television, wire, satellite, and cable. The FCC is made up of five members, two Democrats, two Republicans, and the Chairman, a member of the President's party.

Communications lawyers represent people and business in the communications industry.
