TV Networks Ask Courts to Keep Contracts Private in Comcast Merger Review | Re/code – The companies asked the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit to overturn a Federal Communications Commission decision that would allow outside parties involved in the reviews to see the sensitive documents. They are concerned competitors would use the data during future contract negotiations even though the information is only supposed to be used in relation to the Comcast* and AT&T deals.
Media companies involved in the suit are CBS, Scripps Networks, the Walt Disney Co., Time Warner Inc., 21st Century Fox, Univision and Viacom. The companies filed a similar lawsuit earlier this week but had to refile it Thursday because of some procedural issues.
