Abstract:

Since the passage of the Cable Communications Policy Act of 1984, cable television operators have been required to protect cable subscriber privacy rights with respect to the accumulation and distribution of personally identifying information. As convergence has led to cable operators also increasingly operating as internet service providers, the law has struggled to determine what activities of cable modem subscribers are protected under or subject to the privacy protections found in the Cable Act. This paper discusses the statutory, judicial and regulatory law that has developed regarding cable modem service subscriber privacy rights under the Cable Act. It goes on to argue that the law has thus far developed and has been applied in an inconsistent manner and is presently inadequate to address the continued technological convergence currently being witnessed in the telecommunications industry.
