International. By rejecting the argument that the merger between the two companies does not affect competition or its users, a US judge gave Time Warner and AT & T free rein to merge, as they had announced a year and a half ago.

The judge's decision responds to the request to block the negotiation by the United States Government, which argued that this merger violated the antitrust law.

AT & T, content distributor, will pay 85 one billion dollars for Time Warner, creator of content, which becomes one of the most important businesses in the telecommunications sector and will encourage other businesses that are rumored to be on the way, such as of Comcast and Fox.

The US Government can still appeal the judge's decision, which is why AT & T indicated that before proceeding with the decision, it will wait six days for the government to indicate whether it will appeal.
