Regulation of broadcast indecency background and legal analysis by Angie Welborn( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two prominent television events in the past two years placed increased attention on the FCC and its indecency regulations. The airing of the 2003 Golden Globe Awards and the subsequent ruling by the FCC's Enforcement Bureau, coupled with the controversy surrounding the 2004 Super Bowl half-time show, brought broadcast indecency to the forefront of the congressional agenda during the 108th Congress. Several bills were introduced, but not enacted, in the 108th Congress to increase the penalties imposed for broadcast indecency and to prohibit the broadcast of certain words and phrases in any grammatical form. Similar legislation has been introduced in the 109th Congress. This report provides background on the two events in question, discusses the legal evolution of the FCC's indecency regulations, and provides an overview of how the current regulations have been applied and pending legislation. The final section of the report considers whether prohibiting the broadcast of "indecent" words regardless of context would violate the First Amendment

Burning crosses, hangman's nooses, and the like : state statutes that proscribe the use of symbols of fear and violence with the intent to threaten by Kathleen Ann Ruane( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Almost half of the states outlaw cross burning with the intent to threaten as such. A few of these statues cover the display of hangman's noses and other symbols of intimidation as well. Moreover, the same misconduct also frequently falls under more general state prohibitions on coercion, terroristic threats, harassment, or hate crimes. Some of these laws feature a hate crime element without which conviction is not possible; others do not. In either case, there are obvious First Amendment implications

Fairness doctrine history and constitutional issues by Kathleen Ann Ruane( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Fairness Doctrine was a policy of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC or Commission) that required broadcast licensees to cover issues of public importance and to do so in a fair manner. Issues of public importance were not limited to political campaigns. Nuclear plant construction, workers' rights, and other issues of focus for a particular community could gain the status of an issue that broadcasters were required to cover. Therefore, the Fairness Doctrine was distinct from the so-called "equal time" rule, which requires broadcasters to grant equal time to qualified candidates for public office, because the Fairness Doctrine applied to a much broader range of topics
Journalists' privilege : overview of the law and legislation in the ... Congress by Kathleen Ann Ruane( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

When controversies surrounding the government gaining access to reporters' confidential information arise, news media and other journalists often respond by arguing that journalists should receive special protection from government investigation and interference because the First Amendment's protections of a free press are of paramount importance in a free society. The Supreme Court has only decided one case related to a constitutional privilege allowing journalists to refuse to divulge confidential information to the government. Despite the fact that there may be either limited or no constitutional protection for journalists, statutory and common law protections do exist. Though many states do have either judicially created or statutory 'shield laws' in place, there is no federal statutory shield law. This report will provide an overview of the constitutional status of a journalist's privilege under the First Amendment; a description of two recent cases in which the government sought confidential information from the press (the Judith Miller case, and the recent AP case); and an analysis of the current proposals for enacting a federal shield law

The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act title VII, derivatives by Mark Jickling( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Dodd-Frank Act (P.L. 111-203) sought to remake the OTC market in the image of the regulated futures exchanges. Crucial reforms include a requirement that swap contracts be cleared through a central counterparty regulated by one or more federal agencies. Clearinghouses require traders to put down cash (called initial margin) at the time they open a contract to cover potential losses, and require subsequent deposits (called maintenance margin) to cover actual losses to the position. The intended effect of margin requirements is to eliminate the possibility that any firm can build up an uncapitalized exposure so large that default would have systemic consequences. The size of a cleared position is limited by the firm's ability to post capital to cover its losses. That capital protects its trading partners and the system as a whole. This report describes some of the new requirements placed on the derivatives market by the Dodd-Frank Act
The siting of wireless communications facilities an overview of federal, state, and local law by Kathleen Ann Ruane( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The siting of wireless communications facilities has been a topic of controversy in communities all over the United States. Telecommunications carriers need to place towers in areas where coverage is insufficient or lacking to provide better service to consumers, while local governing boards and community groups often oppose the siting of towers in residential neighborhoods and scenic areas. The Telecommunications Act of 1996 governs federal, state, and local regulation of the siting of communications towers by placing certain limitations on local zoning authority without totally preempting state and local law. This report provides an overview of the federal, state, and local laws governing the siting of wireless communications facilities.1
Funeral protests selected federal laws and constitutional issues by Kathleen Ann Ruane( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Westboro Baptist Church (WBC or Church) has been protesting military funerals for a number of years. The Church has gained national attention as a result. Its primary message is that God hates the United States and is punishing the country for its tolerance of homosexuality. The Church chooses to protest the funerals of fallen soldiers to make the point that in their opinion soldiers are dying as part of God's retribution for this country's sins. Though it began protesting military funerals, it has since branched out to funerals of fire fighters, police officers, and other public servants. It has protested events beyond funerals as well. Recently, the Supreme Court decided a case involving whether the Church could be held liable for intentional infliction of emotional distress and intrusion upon seclusion by the family of a soldier, Matthew Snyder, whose funeral the Church protested. The Supreme Court held that, at least in the case of Matthew Snyder's funeral, the speech of the WBC was fully protected by the First Amendment
