Certification and Notice of Interested Parties.
Malibu, CA (PRWEB) April 2, 2011
Recently, a civil lawsuit (CV11-02674) was filed in federal court (Central District of California) alleging antitrust violations by the defendants and other wireless carriers. Basically, plaintiff Max Davis, the founder of Datarevenue.Org believes the defendants are trying to take control of new age multimedia distribution and profit taking in a way that is vastly unfair to creators, artists and rights holders.
Most of the charges if proven are violations of Title 15 Section 1 also known as the Sherman Act. The remaining charges have to do with Federal Trade Commission and State of California violations of unfair business practices along with violations of the Standards Development Organizational Act of 2004 (SDOAA).
All charges are very serious, but violations of the SDOAA will also effectively strip away any antitrust leniency U.S. laws afford standards development organization activities if collaborations by competitors are out of scope.
The Department of Justice Antitrust Division, The Federal Trade Commission and Federal Communications Commission were all listed in the "Certification and Notice of Interested Parties."
