The satellite merger would constitute a monopoly and a “likely violation” of antitrust laws, says economist J. Gregory Sidak.

The Consumer Coalition for Competition in Satellite Radio hired Sidak, of Criterion Economics, to analyze the likely competitive impact. He is a former deputy general counsel of the FCC.

Sidak, it says, found that the combo would be a monopoly under the most reasonable market definition.
