2015 State of Telecommunication Regulation in the United States: The Empire Strikes Back

Executive Summary

The iconic science fiction movies of all time are arguably the first three Star Wars films. The storyline, which runs throughout, is classic Count of Monte Cristo, where a person of low degree rises to accomplish great things. The key to such a story is, of course, where the hero is brought low (Freytag’s rising action); where all seems lost and only extraordinary efforts will save the day.1 In the climax, the hero prevails and peace reigns in the galaxy. Currently, telecommunication regulation in the United States is approaching a climax, but has currently entered a period of rising action, where the signs are dire. In fact, we are at the second film where the empire strikes back, and things are looking somewhat dire for the hero of the drama.
