New Media Rights joins Coalition for Competition in Media

New Media Rights has joined a new coalition which opposes Comcast's proposed acquisition of NBC-Universal.

We are particularly concerned with the what the merger means for the future of the Internet.

Chief among New Media Rights' concerns are that Comcast will exercise its increasing power as an internet access provider as well as a source of content to affect how the Internet evolves as a central platform for accessing entertainment, news and information.

New Media Rights is committed to ensuring consumers have diversity, access, and lower rates, which we believe this merger will not provide.
