This program will explain the antitrust issues arising out of the marketing practices of regional sports broadcasting networks. This has been an area of interest in the Baltimore/Washington area for sports fans, especially fans of the two local baseball teams. Nationwide, the vertical relationships between content owners, cable providers, and regional sports networks are dominating sports broadcasting. Such relationships, together with increasing consolidation among broadcasters, undoubtedly raise issues in competition and consumer welfare. In addition to describing these concerns, we will also discuss ideas and diverging opinions on the appropriate antitrust analysis of these joint ventures.
This evening program is sponsored by the Antitrust Law Committee of the Antitrust and Consumer Law Section, in cosponsorship with the Administrative Law and Agency Practice Section, Courts, Lawyers and the Administration of Justice Section, Law Practice Management Section and the Litigation Section.
