ANTITRUST GROUP OPPOSES XM/SIRIUS
[SOURCE: Broadcasting&Cable, AUTHOR: John Eggerton]
The American Antitrust Institute has weighed in against the merger of XM and Sirius satellite radio companies. In a filing with the FCC, the nonprofit backers of vigorous antitrust enforcement, argue that neither company has demonstrated that the merger is in the public interest. It also says that neither XM or Sirius has demonstrated that the FCC's 1997 decision not to allow one company to hold both licenses has been superceded by events.
