On October 6, 2014 partner Thomas W. Cohen will moderate Comptel's General Session, "Telecom Convergence and Megamergers." The proposed Comcast/Time Warner Cable and AT&T/DirecTV transactions have the potential to reshape the video programming and broadband landscape, as do other major deals. Reviews of the pending transactions are well underway at the FCC and Department of Justice, as the agencies explore possible harms and consider how best to address them. The panel will explore key matters such as what is at stake for competition and consumers; how other pending FCC proceedings, such as the Open Internet docket, may impact the process; and on which issues the agencies are most likely to focus.
