CASBAA Urges Rate Decontrol, Strong IP Measures -- In a filing to India’s TRAI, CASBAA maintained that there is substantial retail pay-TV competition in India that will restrain tariffs, and urged TRAI to forbear from regulating retail tariffs now and in the future. TRAI had set the right course with its July 2010 tariff order refraining from regulating retail rates of addressable systems (cable as well as DTH), CASBAA said, and it should stay the course. CASBAA also said that revised “interconnection” regulations governing relations between content providers and pay-TV platforms should make it clear that all players should cooperate in active antipiracy programs.
