The FCC must take steps to protect the proprietary interests of those that enter into agreements with the separated affiliates or electronic publishing joint ventures established pursuant to Section 274(a) of the Telecommunications Act of 1996. These parties are not directly covered by the Telecommunications Act or the rulemaking covered by CC Docket 96-152, but may have legitimate business reasons why portions of the contracts or tariffs they enter into with regulated entities should not be disclosed to competitors in their businesses. The FCC shall, at a minimum, require those that must comply with Section 274 (b)(3)(B) to inform the parties that they agree to provide services to under this Section of the Telecommunications Act that the contractual materials will be made available to the public and also inform them of the FCC procedures for requesting proprietary treatment of these materials. The FCC should also ensure that the results of GC Docket 96-55 on Examination of Current Policy Concerning the Treatment of Confidential Information Submitted to the Commission are made available to potential Section 274 service providers so that they may provide this information to those that contract for these services.
