Cover Story: Unlocking Privacy Rules SUBSCRIBER EXCLUSIVE
The price of privacy for Americans is the single issue FCC chairman Tom Wheeler is mulling as the agency tries to craft new broadband privacy rules that would put more restrictions on cable operators and other Internet-service providers than so-called edge providers — such as search engines and social-media platforms — all of which use personal consumer information to boost their business models.  more
WHY THIS MATTERS: The FCC’s current proposal to come up with bright-line rules on broadband customer privacy is only part of the larger issue of keeping consumer data safe from prying eyes while not kneecapping the targeted ad business model that allows for free online content.

Dish, Tribune End Retrans Spat
Dish Network and Tribune Media ended their months-long retransmission-consent dispute over Labor Day weekend, with 42 stations in 33 markets and cable network WGN America returning to Dish customers Saturday. more
WHY THIS MATTERS: Tribune had pulled the signals for the stations on June 13, with Dish complaining that Tribune was asking for exorbitant rate increases and was forcing the satellite-TV service provider to carry WGN America across its footprint.

WHY THIS MATTERS: A panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit has upheld a lower court decision dismissing a class action suit against Time Warner Cable for allegedly tying premium cable services to leasing cable boxes, finding that for the purposes of antitrust law, cable boxes and the premium cable service they transmit are not separate products so can't be anti-competitively tied.
