Separate Statement of Commissioner Gloria Tristani
In the Matter of Nondiscrimination in the Distribution of Interactive Television Services
over Cable, CS Docket No. 01-7.
I support our action to begin addressing the issues arising in the new world of interactive television. I regret however, that we have undertaken a Notice of Inquiry rather than a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking. The world of communications is constantly and rapidly changing. This Commission must move promptly to ascertain the public interest in nascent industries to ensure appropriate measures are timely vetted and resolved.
