A La Carte: Moral Aspects of the Debate

by on December 5, 2005

With a la carte regulation in the news again, I have penned a short new paper on the “Moral and Philosophical Aspects of the Debate over A La Carte Regulation.” In this PFF Progress Snapshot, I set aside the economic issues at stake in this debate and instead focus on the moral arguments that are really driving this debate today, namely: (1) that consumers have a “right” to video programming on any terms they wish; and, (2) that a la carte regulation will help “clean up” indecent programming on cable and satellite television.

To see why neither is the case, read my paper.
