This December litigation associate Alexander G. Malyshev taught a course titled “U.S. Law Of Electronic Communications: Media, Telecommunications, Internet” to upper class students at the University of Wroclaw in Wroclaw, Poland. The course covered the fundamentals of the Federal Communications Commission’s regulation of broadcast, telecommunications, and cable, as well as recent developments related to the Commission’s attempts to regulate broadband internet access under its Open Internet rules (commonly known as Network Neutrality), and proposed relaxation of foreign ownership rules for broadcast media.
Mr. Malyshev is a graduate of New York Law School, where he was an associate of the Media Center and an editor of the Media Law & Policy journal. Mr. Malyshev previously co-taught the Media Law and Policy seminar at New York Law School. The current course, open to graduate students and students in the School of American Law at the University of Wroclaw, evolved from prior cooperation between University of Wroclaw Prof. Dariusz Adamski and New York Law School Prof. Michael Botein.
