Submission + - Comcast's box rental rules violate antitrust laws? (al.com)

DaGoatSpanka writes: A federal lawsuit has been filed against Comcast, alleging that the cable company's rules requiring customers to lease a cable box for premium services violates antitrust laws. The lawsuit states that Comcast and other companies require customers to lease the cable box, which consists of a converter box and a cable descrambler, directly from them even though the devices are available on the open market. "Importantly, the premium channel cable service and the cable box are separate and distinct products," the complaint states.
