It’s been an unusually busy summer for us here at FMC. Instead of taking August off like they’re supposed to, Congress has been charging full steam ahead on various issues, while the FCC has been starting important new proceedings, all of which keep us here at FMC typing madly. We’re pleased to present some contributions from FMC summer interns Brett Keller, Juliet Han and Michael Colangelo in this edition of the newsletter – look for more from them in the next few weeks! Also, an administrative apology: in July we switched the newsletter subscribers to a new database and in the process I (Kristin) lost about 8 requests from folks to unsubscribe from the list. Sorry – just send another request to unsubscribe [at] futureofmusic [dot] org and it will be taken care of promptly.
