SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Section 118 of the Copyright Act, title 17 of the United States Code, establishes a statutory license for the use of certain copyrighted works in connection with noncommercial television and radio broadcasting. The terms and rates for this statutory license have been adjusted periodically by the Librarian of Congress and appear in 37 CFR Part 253. However, the Copyright Royalty and Distribution Reform Act of 2004, Pub. L. No. 108–419, transferred jurisdiction over these rates and terms to the Copyright Royalty Judges. 17 U.S.C. 801(b)(1). This is a window year for the establishment of new rates and terms for the 2008–2012 license period. On January 9, 2006, pursuant to 17 U.S.C. 803(b)(1)(A)(i)(V), the Copyright Royalty Judges published a notice in the Federal Register announcing commencement of proceedings under 17 U.S.C. 118 and requesting interested parties to submit their petitions to participate. 71 FR 1453 (January 9, 2006). Petitions to participate were received from: the American Council on Education (‘‘ACE’’); the National Music Publishers Association, Inc. (‘‘NMPA’’); the Harry Fox Agency (‘‘HFA’’); the National Religious Broadcasters Noncommercial Music License Committee (‘‘NRBNMLC’’); Royalty Logic, Inc.; the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (‘‘ASCAP’’); Broadcast Music, Inc. (‘‘BMI’’); SESAC, Inc.; National Public Radio (‘‘NPR’’); the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (‘‘CPB’’); the Public Broadcasting Service (‘‘PBS’’); and the Church Music Publishers Association, Inc. The Judges set the timetable for the three-month negotiation period, see 17 U.S.C. 803(b)(3), and directed the E:\FR\FM\17APP1.SGM 17APP1 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 73 / Tuesday, April 17, 2007 / Proposed Rules participants to submit their written direct statements no later than January 30, 2007. Instead of written direct statements, the parties submitted notification of settlements and proposed rates and terms for the Copyright Royalty Judges to adopt. There are two ways that copyright owners and public broadcasting entities 1 may negotiate rates and terms under the section 118 statutory license. First, copyright owners may negotiate rates and terms with specific public broadcasting entities for the use of all of the copyright owners’ works covered by the license. Section 118(b)(2) provides that such license agreements ‘‘shall be given effect in lieu of any determination by the * * * Copyright Royalty Judges,’’ provided that copies of the agreements are submitted to the Copyright Royalty Board ‘‘within 30 days of execution.’’ 17 U.S.C. 118(b)(2). The Copyright Royalty Judges received notification of several agreements in this category for which no further action is required. Second, copyright owners and public broadcasting entities may negotiate rates and terms for categories of copyrighted works and uses, that would be binding on all owners and entities, and submit them to the Copyright Royalty Judges for approval. Section 801(b)(7)(A) provides that in such event: cprice-sewell on PRODPC61 with PROPOSALS (i) the Copyright Royalty Judges shall provide to those that would be bound by the terms, rates, or other determination set by any agreement in a proceeding to determine royalty rates an opportunity to comment on the agreement and shall provide to participants in the proceeding under section 803(b)(2) that would be bound by the terms, rates, or other determination set by the agreement to comment on the agreement and object to its adoption as a basis for statutory terms and rates; and (ii) the Copyright Royalty Judges may decline to adopt the agreement as a basis for statutory terms and rates for participants that are not parties to the agreement, if any participant described in clause (i) objects to the agreement and the Copyright Royalty Judges conclude, based on the record before them if one exists, that the agreement does not provide a reasonable basis for setting statutory terms or rates. 17 U.S.C. 801(b)(7)(A). The Copyright Royalty Judges received seven proposals within this category: (1) A joint proposal of BMI and the NRBNMLC; (2) a joint proposal of ASCAP and ACE; (3) a joint proposal of SESAC and ACE; (4) a joint proposal of HFA, NMPA and the NRBNMLC; (5) a joint proposal of 1 A ‘‘public broadcasting entity’’ is defined as a ‘‘noncommercial educational broadcast station as defined in section 397 of title 47 and any nonprofit institution or organization engaged in the activities described in paragraph (2) of subsection (c)’’ of section 118. VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:58 Apr 16, 2007 Jkt 211001 SESAC and the NRBNMLC; (6) a joint proposal of ASCAP and the NRBNMLC; and (7) a joint proposal of BMI and ACE. After reviewing the proposals, the Copyright Royalty Judges determined that they were insufficient on their face.2 By Order dated February 22, 2007, the Judges directed the parties to amend their proposals. On March 15, 2007, ACE, ASCAP, BMI, HFA, NMPA, NPR, NRBNMLC, PBS and SESAC submitted a joint proposal for section 118 rates and terms. It is this proposal that the Judges are publishing today for comment.3 As part of this notice of proposed rulemaking (‘‘NPRM’’), the Copyright Royalty Judges are modifying three aspects of the joint proposal. First, the proposed regulations for terms governing the recording of nondramatic performances and displays of musical works and the terms for the use of published pictorial, graphic and sculptural works require the deposit with the Copyright Office of cue sheets (for musical works) and standard lists (for pictorial, graphic and sculptural works) in hard copy format. We are changing these provisions to require submission of cue sheets and standard lists in electronic disk format only (due to space limitations) and requiring that they be submitted to the offices of the Copyright Royalty Board rather than the Copyright Office. Second, the joint proposal requires public broadcasting entities to make information concerning fees deposited in trust funds for unknown copyright owners available upon request to the Copyright Office. We are changing the provision to make the information available to the Copyright Royalty Judges instead of the Copyright Office. Third, the parties have included a provision in their proposal governing the rates and terms applicable to certain public broadcasting entities that states that such rates and terms are experimental, without precedential effect, and may not be introduced or relied upon in any governmental, administrative or judicial proceeding. The Copyright Royalty Judges decline to include such a provision within our 2 The reason for the insufficiency was the parties’ incorrect assumption that the Copyright Royalty Judges would be amending part 253 of title 37 of the Code of Federal Regulations-the Copyright Office’s rules-rather than our own rules. As a result, the parties only proposed amendments rather than a complete text of regulations. 3 Part 381, which we propose today, will be part of a new Subchapter E which will contain the rates and terms for the various statutory licenses. This new subchapter will be established upon the publication of the final determination of the rates and terms for the section 112 and 114 statutory licenses, Docket No. 2005–1 CRB DTRA, and will contain Part 380. PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 19139 regulations. Our task, as set forth in section 118 and chapter 8 of the Copyright Act, is to adopt rates and terms for the noncommercial broadcasting license. It is not our task to offer evaluations, limitations or characterizations of the rates and terms, or make statements about their use or value in proceedings other than this one. As discussed above, the public may comment and object to any or all of the proposed regulations contained in this NPRM. Those who do comment and object, however, must be prepared to participate in further proceedings in this docket to establish rates and terms for the section 118 license. List of Subjects in 37 CFR Part 381 Copyright, Music, Radio, Television, Rates. Proposed Regulations For the reasons set forth in the preamble, the Copyright Royalty Judges propose to add Part 381 to Chapter III of title 37 of the Code of Federal Regulations to read as follows: PART 381—USE OF CERTAIN COPYRIGHTED WORKS IN CONNECTION WITH NONCOMMERCIAL EDUCATIONAL BROADCASTING Sec. 381.1 General. 381.2 Definition of public broadcasting entity. 381.3 [Reserved] 381.4 Performance of musical compositions by PBS, NPR and other public broadcasting entities engaged in the activities set forth in 17 U.S.C. 118(c). 381.5 Performance of musical compositions by public broadcasting entities licensed to colleges and universities. 381.6 Performance of musical compositions by other public broadcasting entities. 381.7 Recording rights, rates and terms. 381.8 Terms and rates of royalty payments for the use of published pictorial, graphic and sculptural works. 381.9 Unknown copyright owners. 381.10 Cost of living adjustment. 381.11 Notice of restrictions on use of reproductions of transmission programs.

If PBS and its stations, NPR and its stations, or other public broadcasting entity is not aware of the identity of, or unable to locate, a copyright owner who is entitled to receive a royalty payment under this part, they shall retain the required fee in a segregated trust account for a period of three years from the date of the required payment. No claim to such royalty fees shall be valid after the expiration of the three-year period. Public broadcasting entities may establish a joint trust fund for the purposes of this section. Public broadcasting entities shall make available to the Copyright Royalty Judges, upon request, information concerning fees deposited in trust funds. § 381.10 Cost of living adjustment. (a) On December 1, 2007, the Copyright Royalty Judges shall publish in the Federal Register a notice of the change in the cost of living as determined by the Consumer Price Index (all consumers, all items) during the period from the most recent Index published prior to December 1, 2006, to E:\FR\FM\17APP1.SGM 17APP1 19144 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 73 / Tuesday, April 17, 2007 / Proposed Rules the most recent Index published prior to December 1, 2007.

(b) On the same date of the notices published pursuant to paragraph (a) of this section, the Copyright Royalty Judges shall publish in the Federal Register a revised schedule of rates for § 381.5 which shall adjust those royalty amounts established in dollar amounts according to the change in the cost of living determined as provided in paragraph (a) of this section. Such royalty rates shall be fixed at the nearest dollar. (c) The adjusted schedule for rates for § 381.5 shall become effective thirty days after publication in the Federal Register. § 381.11 Notice of restrictions on use of reproductions of transmission programs.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    Section 118 of the Copyright Act, title 17 of the United States 
Code, establishes a statutory license for the use of certain 
copyrighted works in connection with noncommercial television and radio 
broadcasting. The terms and rates for this statutory license have been 
adjusted periodically by the Librarian of Congress and appear in 37 CFR 
Part 253. However, the Copyright Royalty and Distribution Reform Act of 
2004, Pub. L. No. 108-419, transferred jurisdiction over these rates 
and terms to the Copyright Royalty Judges. 17 U.S.C. 801(b)(1). This is 
a window year for the establishment of new rates and terms for the 
2008-2012 license period.
    On January 9, 2006, pursuant to 17 U.S.C. 803(b)(1)(A)(i)(V), the 
Copyright Royalty Judges published a notice in the Federal Register 
announcing commencement of proceedings under 17 U.S.C. 118 and 
requesting interested parties to submit their petitions to participate. 
71 FR 1453 (January 9, 2006). Petitions to participate were received 
from: the American Council on Education (``ACE''); the National Music 
Publishers Association, Inc. (``NMPA''); the Harry Fox Agency 
(``HFA''); the National Religious Broadcasters Noncommercial Music 
License Committee (``NRBNMLC''); Royalty Logic, Inc.; the American 
Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (``ASCAP''); Broadcast 
Music, Inc. (``BMI''); SESAC, Inc.; National Public Radio (``NPR''); 
the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (``CPB''); the Public 
Broadcasting Service (``PBS''); and the Church Music Publishers 
Association, Inc. The Judges set the timetable for the three-month 
negotiation period, see 17 U.S.C. 803(b)(3), and directed the

[[Page 19139]]

participants to submit their written direct statements no later than 
January 30, 2007. Instead of written direct statements, the parties 
submitted notification of settlements and proposed rates and terms for 
the Copyright Royalty Judges to adopt.
    There are two ways that copyright owners and public broadcasting 
entities \1\ may negotiate rates and terms under the section 118 
statutory license. First, copyright owners may negotiate rates and 
terms with specific public broadcasting entities for the use of all of 
the copyright owners' works covered by the license. Section 118(b)(2) 
provides that such license agreements ``shall be given effect in lieu 
of any determination by the * * * Copyright Royalty Judges,'' provided 
that copies of the agreements are submitted to the Copyright Royalty 
Board ``within 30 days of execution.'' 17 U.S.C. 118(b)(2). The 
Copyright Royalty Judges received notification of several agreements in 
this category for which no further action is required.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ A ``public broadcasting entity'' is defined as a 
``noncommercial educational broadcast station as defined in section 
397 of title 47 and any nonprofit institution or organization 
engaged in the activities described in paragraph (2) of subsection 
(c)'' of section 118.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Second, copyright owners and public broadcasting entities may 
negotiate rates and terms for categories of copyrighted works and uses, 
that would be binding on all owners and entities, and submit them to 
the Copyright Royalty Judges for approval. Section 801(b)(7)(A) 
provides that in such event:

    (i) the Copyright Royalty Judges shall provide to those that 
would be bound by the terms, rates, or other determination set by 
any agreement in a proceeding to determine royalty rates an 
opportunity to comment on the agreement and shall provide to 
participants in the proceeding under section 803(b)(2) that would be 
bound by the terms, rates, or other determination set by the 
agreement to comment on the agreement and object to its adoption as 
a basis for statutory terms and rates; and
    (ii) the Copyright Royalty Judges may decline to adopt the 
agreement as a basis for statutory terms and rates for participants 
that are not parties to the agreement, if any participant described 
in clause (i) objects to the agreement and the Copyright Royalty 
Judges conclude, based on the record before them if one exists, that 
the agreement does not provide a reasonable basis for setting 
statutory terms or rates.

17 U.S.C. 801(b)(7)(A). The Copyright Royalty Judges received seven 
proposals within this category: (1) A joint proposal of BMI and the 
NRBNMLC; (2) a joint proposal of ASCAP and ACE; (3) a joint proposal of 
SESAC and ACE; (4) a joint proposal of HFA, NMPA and the NRBNMLC; (5) a 
joint proposal of SESAC and the NRBNMLC; (6) a joint proposal of ASCAP 
and the NRBNMLC; and (7) a joint proposal of BMI and ACE. After 
reviewing the proposals, the Copyright Royalty Judges determined that 
they were insufficient on their face.\2\ By Order dated February 22, 
2007, the Judges directed the parties to amend their proposals. On 
March 15, 2007, ACE, ASCAP, BMI, HFA, NMPA, NPR, NRBNMLC, PBS and SESAC 
submitted a joint proposal for section 118 rates and terms. It is this 
proposal that the Judges are publishing today for comment.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ The reason for the insufficiency was the parties' incorrect 
assumption that the Copyright Royalty Judges would be amending part 
253 of title 37 of the Code of Federal Regulations-the Copyright 
Office's rules-rather than our own rules. As a result, the parties 
only proposed amendments rather than a complete text of regulations.
    \3\ Part 381, which we propose today, will be part of a new 
Subchapter E which will contain the rates and terms for the various 
statutory licenses. This new subchapter will be established upon the 
publication of the final determination of the rates and terms for 
the section 112 and 114 statutory licenses, Docket No. 2005-1 CRB 
DTRA, and will contain Part 380.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As part of this notice of proposed rulemaking (``NPRM''), the 
Copyright Royalty Judges are modifying three aspects of the joint 
proposal. First, the proposed regulations for terms governing the 
recording of nondramatic performances and displays of musical works and 
the terms for the use of published pictorial, graphic and sculptural 
works require the deposit with the Copyright Office of cue sheets (for 
musical works) and standard lists (for pictorial, graphic and 
sculptural works) in hard copy format. We are changing these provisions 
to require submission of cue sheets and standard lists in electronic 
disk format only (due to space limitations) and requiring that they be 
submitted to the offices of the Copyright Royalty Board rather than the 
Copyright Office.
    Second, the joint proposal requires public broadcasting entities to 
make information concerning fees deposited in trust funds for unknown 
copyright owners available upon request to the Copyright Office. We are 
changing the provision to make the information available to the 
Copyright Royalty Judges instead of the Copyright Office.
    Third, the parties have included a provision in their proposal 
governing the rates and terms applicable to certain public broadcasting 
entities that states that such rates and terms are experimental, 
without precedential effect, and may not be introduced or relied upon 
in any governmental, administrative or judicial proceeding. The 
Copyright Royalty Judges decline to include such a provision within our 
regulations. Our task, as set forth in section 118 and chapter 8 of the 
Copyright Act, is to adopt rates and terms for the noncommercial 
broadcasting license. It is not our task to offer evaluations, 
limitations or characterizations of the rates and terms, or make 
statements about their use or value in proceedings other than this one.
    As discussed above, the public may comment and object to any or all 
of the proposed regulations contained in this NPRM. Those who do 
comment and object, however, must be prepared to participate in further 
proceedings in this docket to establish rates and terms for the section 
118 license.

 of fine art is copyrighted so as to be subject also to
 payment of a display fee under the terms of the schedule...
 

    (ii) For such uses in other than PBS-distributed programs:

                                                               2008-2012

transparency or other reproduction of an underlying work of fine art.
    (c) Payment of royalty rate. PBS or other public broadcasting 
entity shall pay the required royalty fees to each copyright owner not 
later than July 31 of each calendar year for uses during the first six 
months of that calendar year, and not later than January 31 for uses 
during the last six months of the preceding calendar year.
    (d) Records of use. (1) PBS and its stations or other public 
broadcasting entity shall maintain and furnish either to copyright 
owners, or to the offices of generally recognized organizations 
representing the copyright owners of pictorial, graphic and sculptural 
works, copies of their standard lists containing the pictorial, 
graphic, and sculptural works displayed on their programs. Such notice 
shall include the name of the copyright owner, if known, the specific 
source from which the work was taken, a description of the work used, 
the title of the program on which the work was used, and the date of 
the original broadcast of the program.
    (2) Such listings shall be furnished not later than July 31 of each 
calendar year for displays during the first six months of the calendar 
year, and not later than January 31 of each calendar year for displays 
during the second six months of the preceding calendar year.
    (e) Filing of use reports with the Copyright Royalty Judges. (1)

Document Format (PDF) on compact disk (an optical data storage medium 
such as a CD-ROM, CD-R or CD-RW) or floppy diskette of their standard 
lists containing the pictorial, graphic, and sculptural works displayed 
on their programs. Such notice shall include the name of the copyright 
owner, if known, the specific source from which the work was taken, a 
description of the work used, the title of the program on which the 
work was used, and the date of the original broadcast of the program.
    (2) Such listings shall be furnished not later than July 31 of each

following additional payment: Additional one-year period--25 percent of 
the initial three-year fee; second three-year period--50 percent of the 
initial three-year fee; each three-year period thereafter--25 percent 
of the initial three-year fee; provided that a 100 percent additional 
payment prior to the expiration of the first three-year period will 
cover use during all subsequent use periods without limitation. Such 
succeeding uses which are subsequent to December 31, 2012, shall be 
subject to the rates established in this schedule.
    (2) Pursuant to the provisions of 17 U.S.C. 118(e), nothing in this 
schedule shall be construed to permit, beyond the limits of fair use as 
provided in 17 U.S.C. 107, the production of a transmission program 
drawn to any substantial extent from a published compilation of 
pictorial, graphic, or sculptural works.

    If PBS and its stations, NPR and its stations, or other public 
broadcasting entity is not aware of the identity of, or unable to 
locate, a copyright owner who is entitled to receive a royalty payment 
under this part, they shall retain the required fee in a segregated 
trust account for a period of three years from the date of the required 
payment. No claim to such royalty fees shall be valid after the 
expiration of the three-year period. Public broadcasting entities may 
establish a joint trust fund for the purposes of this section. Public 
broadcasting entities shall make available to the Copyright Royalty 
Judges, upon request, information concerning fees deposited in trust

during the period from the most recent Index published prior to 
December 1, 2006, to

the most recent Index published prior to December 1, 2007. On each 
December 1 thereafter the Copyright Royalty Judges shall publish a 
notice of the change in the cost of living during the period from the 
most recent index published prior to the previous notice, to the most 
recent Index published prior to December 1, of that year.
    (b) On the same date of the notices published pursuant to paragraph 
(a) of this section, the Copyright Royalty Judges shall publish in the 
Federal Register a revised schedule of rates for Sec.  381.5 which 
shall adjust those royalty amounts established in dollar amounts 
according to the change in the cost of living determined as provided in 
paragraph (a) of this section. Such royalty rates shall be fixed at the 
nearest dollar.
    (c) The adjusted schedule for rates for Sec.  381.5 shall become 
effective thirty days after publication in the Federal Register.


Sec.  381.11  Notice of restrictions on use of reproductions of 
transmission programs.

    Any public broadcasting entity which, pursuant to 17 U.S.C. 118, 
supplies a reproduction of a transmission program to governmental 
bodies or nonprofit institutions shall include with each copy of the 
reproduction a warning notice stating in substance that the 
reproductions may be used for a period of not more than seven days from
