Tale of Two Agencies – Overlapping Jurisdiction of the FCC and FTC - Audio/Video

Telecommunications & Electronic Media Practice Group
Maureen K. Ohlhausen, Ajit V. Pai, Alexander Okuliar September 06, 2015

With the adoption of the Open Internet Order, the Federal Communications Commission has potentially waded into areas that have historically been within the Federal Trade Commission’s jurisdiction. How are privacy, consumer protection, and technology policy issues currently being handled by the agencies – do their actions complement each other or are they creating regulatory tension and uncertainty? If there is a turf war going on, will Congress step in or will the courts decide? How does it impact competition policies and consumer protection? Join FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai and FTC Commissioner Maureen Ohlhausen as they engage in a moderated discussion about these and other issues relating to the respective roles of their agencies.
