SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The captioned consolidated royalty 
distribution proceeding concluded on August 14, 2015, when the United 
States Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit issued a mandate relating to 
their June 30, 2015, order affirming the distribution shares for 
claimants in the Program Suppliers category as determined by the 
Copyright Royalty Judges (Judges). After the mandate, the Judges 
received filings from Worldwide Subsidy Group dba Independent Producers 
Group (IPG) and the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) 
contesting the appropriate methodology for distribution of the 
remaining royalty funds on deposit.
    By order dated November 25, 2015, the Judges directed MPAA to 
provide historical context from which the Judges and the Licensing 
Division of the Copyright Office could distribute accurately the funds, 
taking into account prior partial distributions, fund growth through 
accrued interest, and deductions for Licensing Division costs. MPAA 
provided the necessary information on December 7, 2015. The Licensing 
Division staff provided accounting services to assure accurate 
distribution in accordance with the Judges' orders.
    The Licensing Division calculated that, as of February 17, 2016, 
the total distribution to IPG for each royalty year should be:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------
2000....................................................        $617,719
2001....................................................         164,203
2002....................................................         197,725
2003....................................................         125,884
                                                         ---------------
    Total...............................................       1,105,531
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Now, therefore, the Judges hereby order that the Licensing Division 
make final distribution to IPG from the Program Suppliers category for 
the years 2000 through 2003, inclusive, in the amounts listed, adjusted 
if necessary to reflect interest accrued or costs incurred from and 
after February 17, 2016, to the date of distribution.
    The Judges further order that the Licensing Division distribute 
simultaneously the remaining funds in the Program Suppliers category 
for royalty years 2000 through 2003, inclusive, to MPAA, adjusted if 
necessary to reflect interest accrued or costs incurred from and after 
February 17, 2016.
    The Judges further order that IPG and MPAA provide to the Licensing 
Division all necessary and pertinent information to facilitate the 
transfer by March 31, 2016.

    Dated: March 23, 2016.

Chief Copyright Royalty Judge.
