Moments ago, President Obama signed into law the Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010.  Among other things, the Act reinstates the FCC's video description rules, which were first adopted in 2000 but struck down by the D.C. Court of Appeals, and extends the FCC's closed captioning rules to the Internet. 

For further discussion of the Act, please read Brendan Holland's blog on our sister site, the Broadcast Law Blog.

DWT will also be issuing an in-depth Advisory on the Act's video description and closed captioning rules, so stay tuned.
