ACTION: Final rule. pwalker on PROD1PC71 with RULES AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Copyright Office of the Library of Congress is publishing a final rule establishing a lower basic registration fee of $35 for copyright claims submitted electronically. This fee applies to all registrations where the application is submitted electronically, including those registrations where the deposit materials cannot be sent electronically together with the application. At the same time, the Office is retaining its current fee of $45 for processing paper applications for basic copyright registration of a copyright claim. The dual fee structure reflects the reduced cost of processing electronic claims and serves as an incentive to the public to utilize the new online, electronic registration system. On or after July 1, 2007, the Copyright Office will begin accepting a limited number of electronic submissions of copyright claims through the Internet and the new fee will apply to these applications. The adoption of the new rule assumes that no legislative action will take place before July 1, 2007. EFFECTIVE DATE: July 1, 2007.

Telefax: (202) 707–8366. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background This final rule adjusts Copyright Office fees in accordance with the applicable provisions of title 17, United States Code, and the Technical Amendments Act, Pub. L. No. 105–80, 111 Stat. 1529 (1997), codified as 17 U.S.C. 708(b). In 1997, Congress delegated to the Register of Copyrights authority to adjust fees in accordance with a new procedure. This procedure requires the Register to conduct a study of the costs incurred for fee services, such as the registration of claims, the recordation of documents, and search services. If, after the review and application of all statutory criteria, the Register determines that fees should be adjusted, the Register prepares a proposed fee schedule and submits the schedule and the accompanying economic analysis to Congress. 17 U.S.C. 708(b)(5). The fee proposed in that schedule may be instituted in 120 days unless Congress enacts a law within that 120 day period stating that it does not approve the schedule. Id. Technical Amendments Act, Pub. L. No. 105–80, 111 Stat. 1529 (1997). The Copyright Office has instituted fee adjustments under the Technical Amendments Act on three separate occasions. The first schedule was adopted in 1999. See 63 FR 43426 (August 13, 1998) and 64 FR 29518 (June 1, 1999). Three years later a second adjustment was made raising many copyright fees, but leaving the basic copyright registration fee at $30. 67 FR 38003 (May 31, 2002). The last fee adjustment was adopted in 2006, in which most statutory fees were again raised due to increase in costs. In this instance, the basic registration fee was increased from $30 to $45. 71 FR 15368 (March 28, 2006) and 71 FR 31089 (June 1, 2006). Cost Study In raising the basic registration fee last year to $45, the commentary in the Federal Register notice anticipated establishing a differential fee schedule with lower filing fees for online registration to reflect the efficiencies of the new reengineered processes. 71 FR at 31090. It is intended that the dual fee will not only reflect the reduced costs of processing electronic claims, but will also provide an incentive to potential electronic filers. On February 21, 2007, a cost study was submitted to Congress proposing to PO 00000 Frm 00054 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 reduce the basic registration fee for copyright claims submitted electronically to $35 and to institute new fees for listing titles of individual works in an application for a collection or collective work. The per title fee for an electronic submission would be $1 and the per title fee for a paper application would be $3. However, the proposed fees for listing titles of individual works in an application for a collection or collective work are not being adopted at this time. The cost study used to determine the new fees was developed by the Copyright Office based on a model created as part of its business process reengineering initiative. The cost analysis utilized an activity–based costing methodology approved by the Office of Management and Budget in its publication, Managerial Cost Accounting Standards for the Federal Government, Statement of Federal Financial Accounting Standards, No. 4 (July 31, 1995). Cost studies of this type are retrospective, using actual data from a prior fiscal year. However, costing for the proposed fee had to be done prospectively, as an adjunct to the earlier cost study, because electronic registration has not been offered in the past. In developing the new fee, the Copyright Office utilized data from a small–scale testbed for electronic registration and data from prior cost studies relating to the costs of certain paper handling processes which will be eliminated by the new electronic processing systems. On the basis of the information available to the Copyright Office, it concluded that a fee of $35 for the electronic processing of a claim to copyright to be reasonable. The Office is likely to revisit the fee issue once the electronic system has been fully operational for a sufficient period of time so as to yield reliable information on the actual costs involved in providing the service. The Office is also adopting technical amendments to bring all fees within the fee schedules set forth in § § 201.3 (c) and (e) of title 37 of the CFR. Specifically, the Office is amending § § 201.11(h)(3)(iv)(A), 201. 201.17(k)(3)(iv)(A), 201.27 (g)(2), 201.28(i)(3)(v)(A), 212.3(e)(1), (f)(4), and 212.5(c)(4). Effective Date Congress has 120 days from February 21, 2007, to review the statutory fees submitted to it, codified in § 201.3(c). If no legislation is enacted barring adoption of these fees, the $35 proposed fee for registration of copyright claims submitted electronically will be adopted, effective July 1, 2007.

[Docket No. RM 2007-6]


Fees

AGENCY: Copyright Office, Library of Congress.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Copyright Office of the Library of Congress is publishing 
a final rule establishing a lower basic registration fee of $35 for 
copyright claims submitted electronically. This fee applies to all 
registrations where the application is submitted electronically, 
including those registrations where the deposit materials cannot be 
sent electronically together with the application. At the same time, 
the Office is retaining its current fee of $45 for processing paper 
applications for basic copyright registration of a copyright claim. The 
dual fee structure reflects the reduced cost of processing electronic 
claims and serves as an incentive to the public to utilize the new 
online, electronic registration system. On or after July 1, 2007, the 
Copyright Office will begin accepting a limited number of electronic 
submissions of copyright claims through the Internet and the new fee 
will apply to these applications. The adoption of the new rule assumes 
that no legislative action will take place before July 1, 2007.

EFFECTIVE DATE: July 1, 2007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    This final rule adjusts Copyright Office fees in accordance with 
the applicable provisions of title 17, United States Code, and the 
Technical Amendments Act, Pub. L. No. 105-80, 111 Stat. 1529 (1997), 
codified as 17 U.S.C. 708(b).
    In 1997, Congress delegated to the Register of Copyrights authority 
to adjust fees in accordance with a new procedure. This procedure 
requires the Register to conduct a study of the costs incurred for fee 
services, such as the registration of claims, the recordation of 
documents, and search services. If, after the review and application of 
all statutory criteria, the Register determines that fees should be 
adjusted, the Register prepares a proposed fee schedule and submits the 
schedule and the accompanying economic analysis to Congress. 17 U.S.C. 
708(b)(5). The fee proposed in that schedule may be instituted in 120 
days unless Congress enacts a law within that 120 day period stating 
that it does not approve the schedule. Id. Technical Amendments Act, 
Pub. L. No. 105-80, 111 Stat. 1529 (1997).
    The Copyright Office has instituted fee adjustments under the 
Technical Amendments Act on three separate occasions. The first 
schedule was adopted in 1999. See 63 FR 43426 (August 13, 1998) and 64 
FR 29518 (June 1, 1999). Three years later a second adjustment was made 
raising many copyright fees, but leaving the basic copyright 
registration fee at $30. 67 FR 38003 (May 31, 2002). The last fee 
adjustment was adopted in 2006, in which most statutory fees were again 
raised due to increase in costs. In this instance, the basic 
registration fee was increased from $30 to $45. 71 FR 15368 (March 28, 
2006) and 71 FR 31089 (June 1, 2006).

Cost Study

    In raising the basic registration fee last year to $45, the 
commentary in the Federal Register notice anticipated establishing a 
differential fee schedule with lower filing fees for online 
registration to reflect the efficiencies of the new reengineered 
processes. 71 FR at 31090. It is intended that the dual fee will not 
only reflect the reduced costs of processing electronic claims, but 
will also provide an incentive to potential electronic filers.
    On February 21, 2007, a cost study was submitted to Congress 
proposing to reduce the basic registration fee for copyright claims 
submitted electronically to $35 and to institute new fees for listing 
titles of individual works in an application for a collection or 
collective work. The per title fee for an electronic submission would 
be $1 and the per title fee for a paper application would be $3. 
However, the proposed fees for listing titles of individual works in an 
application for a collection or collective work are not being adopted 
at this time.
    The cost study used to determine the new fees was developed by the 
Copyright Office based on a model created as part of its business 
process reengineering initiative. The cost analysis utilized an 
activity-based costing methodology approved by the Office of Management 
and Budget in its publication, Managerial Cost Accounting Standards for 
the Federal Government, Statement of Federal Financial Accounting 
Standards, No. 4 (July 31, 1995). Cost studies of this type are 
retrospective, using actual data from a prior fiscal year. However, 
costing for the proposed fee had to be done prospectively, as an 
adjunct to the earlier cost study, because electronic registration has 
not been offered in the past. In developing the new fee, the Copyright 
Office utilized data from a small-scale testbed for electronic 
registration and data from prior cost studies relating to the costs of 
certain paper handling processes which will be eliminated by the new 
electronic processing systems. On the basis of the information 
available to the Copyright Office, it concluded that a fee of $35 for 
the electronic processing of a claim to copyright to be reasonable. The 
Office is likely to revisit the fee issue once the electronic system 
has been fully operational for a sufficient period of time so as to 
yield reliable information on the actual costs involved in providing 
the service.
    The Office is also adopting technical amendments to bring all fees 
within the fee schedules set forth in Sec.  Sec.  201.3 (c) and (e) of 
title 37 of the CFR. Specifically, the Office is amending Sec.  Sec.  
201.11(h)(3)(iv)(A), 201. 201.17(k)(3)(iv)(A), 201.27 (g)(2), 
201.28(i)(3)(v)(A), 212.3(e)(1), (f)(4), and 212.5(c)(4).

Effective Date

    Congress has 120 days from February 21, 2007, to review the 
statutory fees submitted to it, codified in Sec.  201.3(c). If no 
legislation is enacted barring adoption of these fees, the $35 proposed 
fee for registration of copyright claims submitted electronically will 
be adopted, effective July 1, 2007.
