at last: CALM Act Regulates Volume of TV Commercials

I can’t believe something so obvious as LOUD COMMERCIALS be something to be regulated.

Subject: CALM Act Regulates Volume of TV Commercials

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) established new rules for the volume of television commercials that started on December 13, 2012. The new regulation, known as the Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation (CALM) Act, requires commercials to have the same average volume as the programs they accompany. The CALM Act requires TV stations, cable operators or other multichannel video program distributors to apply specific FCC practices to commercials they transmit.

If you hear a commercial louder than the TV show it accompanies, you can file a complaint with the FCC by providing detailed information about the commercial.

Learn more about the CALM Act.

    Rather funny to hear such ruling ! Economy is not that solid, yet the government comes out with all sort of weird rulings/regulations on businesses!
