Conflict of Interest

There are three recent examples in which a conflict of interest has occurred or is occurring in the telecommunications arena, says Professor Dariusz Leszczynski.

They are:

1. A conflict of interest affecting a judge who is to preside over a decision about Berkeley's right-to-know ordinance.

2. The appointment of Tom Wheeler, former CTIA (telecom industry) boss, as Chairman of the FCC.

3. The appointment of CK Chou, former Motorola employee, as chair of the IEEE-ICES-TC95 committee which is involved in the development of safety standards.
