Lineup out for video competition panel


The list of witnesses is out for the House Subcommittee on Communications, Technology, and the Internet, and it looks like there may be some possibility of seeing a few sparks generated – although not all potential players have a representative. But interests from the cable, telco and production communities will be there.

The session is on the schedule for Thursday, 10/22/09 at 10AM. The subcommittee is chaired by Rick Boucher (D-VA); Cliff Stearns (R-FL) is the Ranking Member.

Appearing on the witness panel:

* Terrence Denson, Verizon

* Patrick Knorr, Sunflower Broadband

* Ronald Moore, “Battlestar Galactica” executive producer

* Benjamin Pyne, Disney Media Networks

* Thomas Rutledge, Cablevision

* Adam Thierer, Progress and Freedom Foundation
