FCC Calls for Indecency Comments


The Commission has opened a docket (GN Docket 13-86) for comment on what types of indecency complaints it should pursue—all of them, or only the “most egregious.” By addressing only the latter following the landmark FCC v. Fox Television Supreme Court decision, the agency has reduced its backlog of indecency complaints by 70% (over 1 million). Comments are due 30 days after publication in the Federal Register, with replies due 30 days thereafter.
