Disney and Viacom Sue FCC over New Kid TV Rules

Disney, Viacom, and others are suing the FCC over extensions to children television rules set to enter into force on January 1st.  The essence of the rules extend educational content requirements and advertising limits to digital broadcasts.  Programmers object based on the fact that digital broadcasts can use multiple channels where one otherwise existed in the analog world.  Extending the rules to these channels can limit what programmers can or would like to do with them.  Details of the suit and issues are contained in a Washington Post story.
