Under the cable compulsory license, section 111 of title 17, United States Code, a cable operator may carry the signal of a television station classified as a specialty station at the base rate rather than at the higher 3.75% rate that is incurred for the carriage of a non– permitted signal. 37 CFR 256.2(c). Specialty station status is determined by reference to the former regulations of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) which defined a specialty station as ‘‘a commercial television broadcast station that generally carries foreign–language, religious, and/or automated programming in one–third of the hours of an average broadcast week and one– third of the weekly prime–time hours.’’ 47 CFR 76.5(kk) (1981). The FCC no longer determines whether a station qualifies as a specialty station; however, the Copyright Office updates the list periodically, because the list remains relevant to the cable statutory license scheme. The Copyright Office published its first specialty station list in 1990 under a procedure which allowed the licensee of the station to file an affidavit with the Office attesting to the fact that the station’s programming comports with the 1981 FCC definition and hence, qualifies it as a specialty station. At the same time, the Office also announced its intention to regularly update the list. 55 FR 40021 (October 1, 1990). The Office’s second list was published in 1995. 60 FR 34303 (June 30, 1995). Its third list was published in 1998. 63 FR 67703 (December 8, 1998). On February 8, 2007, the Copyright Office published a notice asking the licensee, or a valid agent of the licensee, to file a sworn affidavit with the Copyright Office stating that the station’s programming satisfies the FCC’s former requirements for specialty station status. 72 FR 6008 (February 8, 2007). In response to the notice, the Copyright Office received affidavits on SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Copyright Office 33251 E:\FR\FM\15JNN1.SGM 15JNN1 33252 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 115 / Friday, June 15, 2007 / Notices behalf of sixty–one broadcast television stations. These stations are listed below. Any party that objects to another party’s claim to specialty station status should submit specific and factual comments as to which station(s) he or she objects to, and why. A final annotated list of specialty stations including references to any objections filed against a particular station licensee’s claim will be published in the Federal Register. Copyright Office licensing examiners shall refer to the final annotated list in examining a statement of account where a cable system operator claims specialty station status for a particular station. If a cable system operator claims specialty station status for a station not on the published final list, the examiner determines whether the owner of the station has filed an affidavit since publication of the list. Affidavits received after publication of the final annotated list shall be kept on file in the Licensing Division of the Copyright Office. Any interested party may file an objection to any such late–filed affidavit and the objection shall be filed together with the corresponding affidavit. jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES List of Specialty Stations: Call Letter and Cities of License KBLN, Grants Pass, OR KAKW, Kileen, TX KTFO–CA, Austin, TX KDTV(TV), San Francisco, CA KDTV–CA, Santa Rosa, CA KFTV(TV), Hanford, CA KMEX–TV, Los Angeles, CA KNIC–TV, Blanco, TX KTVW–TV, Phoenix, AZ KTVW–CA, Flagstaff, AZ KUTH(TV), Provo, UT KUVE–TV, Green Valley, AZ KUVE–CA, Tuscon, AZ KUVN–TV, Garland, TX KUVN–CA, Fort Worth, TX KUVS–TV, Modesto, CA KWEX–TV, San Antonio, TX KXLN–TV, Rosenberg, TX WGBO–TV, Joliet, IL WFDC–TV, Arlington, VA WLTV(TV), Miami, FL WHQS–TV, Cleveland, OH WUVG–TV, Athens, GA WTNC–LP, Durham, NC WUVC–TV, Fayetteville, NC WUVP–TV, Vineland, NJ WXTV(TV), Paterson, NJ K48GX, Tuscon, AZ KABE–LP, Bakersfield, CA KFPH–TV, Flagstaff, AZ KFPH–CA, Phoenix, AZ KFSF–TV, Vallejo, CA KFTH–TV, Alvin, TX KFTR–TV, Ontatio, CA KFTU–TV, Douglas, AZ KFTU–CA, Tuscon, AZ KSTR–TV, Irving, TX VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:26 Jun 14, 2007 Jkt 211001 KTFD–TV, Boulder, CO KTFF–TV, Portersville, CA KTFF–LP, Fresno, CA KTFK–TV, Stockton, CA KTFQ–TV, Albuquerque, NM WAMI–TV, Hollywood, FL WFTT–TV, Tampa, FL WFTY–TV, Smithtown, NY WFUT–TV, Newark, NJ WOTF–TV, Melbourne, FL WUTF–TV, Marlborough, MA WXFT–TV, Aurora, IL WLII(TV), Caguas, Puerto Rico WSUR–TV Ponce, Puerto Rico KBTF–CA, Bakersfield, CA KFTO–CA, San Antonio, TX KNIC–CA, San Antonio, TX KTFB–CA, Bakersfield, CA WFPA–CA, Philadelphia, PA K21GC, Safford, AZ K45DX, Floresville, TX KZOL–LP, Safford, AZ K16FB, Globe, AZ KDOS–LP, Globe, AZ Dated: June 8, 2007 Tanya M.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the cable compulsory license, section 
111 of title 17, United States Code, a cable operator may carry the 
signal of a television station classified as a specialty station at the 
base rate rather than at the higher 3.75% rate that is 
incurred for the carriage of a non-permitted signal. 37 CFR 256.2(c). 
Specialty station status is determined by reference to the former 
regulations of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) which 
defined a specialty station as ``a commercial television broadcast 
station that generally carries foreign-language, religious, and[sol]or 
automated programming in one-third of the hours of an average broadcast 
week and one-third of the weekly prime-time hours.'' 47 CFR 76.5(kk) 
(1981). The FCC no longer determines whether a station qualifies as a 
specialty station; however, the Copyright Office updates the list 
periodically, because the list remains relevant to the cable statutory 
license scheme.
    The Copyright Office published its first specialty station list in 
1990 under a procedure which allowed the licensee of the station to 
file an affidavit with the Office attesting to the fact that the 
station's
    programming comports with the 1981 FCC definition and hence, 
qualifies it as a specialty station. At the same time, the Office also 
announced its intention to regularly update the list. 55 FR 40021 
(October 1, 1990). The Office's second list was published in 1995. 60 
FR 34303 (June 30, 1995). Its third list was published in 1998. 63 FR 
67703 (December 8, 1998).
    On February 8, 2007, the Copyright Office published a notice asking 
the licensee, or a valid agent of the licensee, to file a sworn 
affidavit with the Copyright Office stating that the station's 
programming satisfies the FCC's former requirements for specialty 
station status. 72 FR 6008 (February 8, 2007). In response to the 
notice, the Copyright Office received affidavits on

[[Page 33252]]

behalf of sixty-one broadcast television stations. These stations are 
listed below. Any party that objects to another party's claim to 
specialty station status should submit specific and factual comments as 
to which station(s) he or she objects to, and why. A final annotated 
list of specialty stations including references to any objections filed 
against a particular station licensee's claim will be published in the 
Federal Register.
    Copyright Office licensing examiners shall refer to the final 
annotated list in examining a statement of account where a cable system 
operator claims specialty station status for a particular station. If a 
cable system operator claims specialty station status for a station not 
on the published final list, the examiner determines whether the owner 
of the station has filed an affidavit since publication of the list. 
Affidavits received after publication of the final annotated list shall 
be kept on file in the Licensing Division of the Copyright Office. Any 
interested party may file an objection to any such late-filed affidavit 
and the objection shall be filed together with the corresponding 
affidavit.
