This case involved the FCC vs. Fox cable network. In this case Fox was challenging fines placed on them by the Federal Communications Committee for showing indecent portrayals of mild nudity on some of their shows. They stated that the FCC did not have a right to fine them because they did not warn them ahead of time that they couldn’t show that.

I find it funny how Fox claims that they couldn’t be fined just because the FCC did not warn them ahead of time. It should seem pretty obvious that they would get in trouble for allowing that type of scene on their show without getting it cleared first.
