Box 70400, Southwest Station, Washington, DC 20024. Telephone: (202) 707–8380. Telefax: (202) 707–8366. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On December 8, 2004, the President signed the Satellite Home Viewer Extension and Reauthorization Act of 2004, a part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2004. See Pub. L. No. 108–447, 118 Stat. 3394 (2004) (hereinafter ‘‘SHVERA’’). Section 109 of the SHVERA requires the Copyright Office to examine and compare the statutory licensing systems for the cable and satellite television industries under Sections 111, 119, and 122 of the Copyright Act and recommend any necessary legislative changes no later that June 30, 2008. Earlier this year, we released a Notice of Inquiry (NOI) seeking comment on VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:32 Jun 18, 2007 Jkt 211001 several issues associated with the matters identified in Section 109 of the SHVERA. See 72 FR 19039 (April 16, 2007). To further supplement the record, the Office announced the scheduling of public hearings for the purpose of taking testimony from interested persons. The hearings are to be held during the week of July 23, 2007. See 72 FR 28998 (May 23, 2007). On June 11, 2007, the Copyright Office received a Motion for an Extension of Time to File Comments and Reply Comments in this proceeding from the following parties: (1) Program Suppliers; (2) Joint Sports Claimants; (3) Public Television Claimants; (4) NAB; (5) BMI; (6) SESAC; (7) Michael Remington of Drinker Biddle; and (8) John Beiter of Loeb & Loeb. The parties have also requested that the Office move the date of its public hearings as originally announced in the Federal Register on May 23, 2007. The parties have proposed to move the dates for: (1) the filing of initial comments from July 2, 2007, to September 7, 2007; (2) the filing of reply comments from September 13, 2007, to November 16, 2007; and (3) the hearing from July 23–26, 2007, to the week of September 24, 2007. Under their proposed schedule, witnesses would be identified on August 24, 2007, instead of June 15, 2007, and written questions of testimony would be filed on September 7, 2007, instead of July 2, 2007. They add that moving the dates of the public hearings into the month of August would create ‘‘numerous scheduling problems.’’ The parties state that the issues raised in this proceeding, ‘‘besides being so wide–ranging, are of substantial importance to the industries that will be affected by Congress’s ultimate resolution’’ of the matters enumerated in Section 109 of the SHVERA and discussed by the Copyright Office in the NOI. For this reason, and this reason alone, the parties urge the Office to provide more time to allow further consideration of these issues within their respective industry groups before initial comments are filed. We deny all of the extension requests, except for the date by which reply comments are due. The parties have failed to provide a substantive reason why most of the extensions are necessary. They have not adequately stated why the 75 day time frame for filing comments set forth by the Office in the Section 109 NOI was insufficient nor have they adequately explained why they need over seven months to file reply comments. It is important for the parties to recognize that the Office will need time to draft the Report to PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 33777 Congress, which will be a considerable effort given the limited amount of administrative resources available. Nevertheless, to provide all parties with more time to make a meaningful rebuttal to the comments and testimony filed in July 2007, we will extend the dates reply comments are due for an additional two and a half weeks. We will also consider whether to hold additional hearings or permit the filing of surreplies after reply comments are filed in October. Conclusion We hereby extend the time by which interested parties may file reply comments from September 13, 2007, to October 1, 2007. Dated: June 14, 2007 Tanya M.
