SUMMARY OF COMMERCIAL LEASED ACCESS STATUTE AND FCC RULES
The Cable Communications Policy Act of 1984 included Section 612 which established the statutory framework for commercial leased access. Section 612 was amended in the Cable Television Consumer Protection and Competition Act of 1992. Section 612 is a part of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended. Section 612 sets forth the requirements for cable operators to designate a percentage of their channel capacity for commercial use and allows cable operators to use that designated capacity until leased access use is obtained by an unaffiliated person pursuant to a written agreement. You may click here to view Communications Act Section 612.

The Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) has adopted rules for cable operators to establish the price, terms and conditions for use of the operator’s designated leased access channel capacity. The FCC has also promulgated rules for resolving disputes concerning leased access rates, terms and conditions. You may click here to view the FCC’s commercial leased access rules.
