MEI Report 791 — National Content: A Lexical Guide to Legal Dispositions

Our new, 32-page report provides a mini-dictionary of terms and legal dispositions related to National Content in Mexico.

The inspiration for the development of the dictionary was a panel on national content that was held in Houston on September 8th, and which is the topic in my column in MILENIO of October 12.

The history of national content rules is mixed. In the United States, there are no national content rules.  The market is left to choose the best suppliers. National content requirements and known to promote cheating and inflation.

Table 1 is a list of sources where the topic of national content appears. Table 2 is an alphabetical list of terms, showing also the corresponding legal disposition. Table 3 provides a sort of the terms according to their respective legal disposition. Table 4 is the same presentation with the addition of extracts from the original documents and an English translation.

The translations are provisional, provided by Google Translate (with limited editorial review).
