In Order No. 154, the Commission authorized 14 nonpostal services to SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00129 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 continue.1 Finding the record insufficient in certain respects, the Commission deferred ruling on three issues more fully addressed below, involving licensing, the warranty repair program, and sales of music compact discs. This order establishes procedures to develop a more complete record on these issues beginning with an opportunity for the Postal Service to present its case on these issues and followed by an opportunity for interested persons to respond.2 Licensing. In Order No. 154, the Commission generally authorized the licensing of the Postal Service’s intellectual property to continue as a nonpostal service. Id. at 73. As an interim measure, however, the Commission grandfathered the licenses of the Postal Service’s brands on products relating to the Postal Service’s operations, categorized by the Postal Service as Mailing & Shipping, pending the outcome of Phase II. This issue was brought to the forefront late in the first phase of this proceeding by Pitney Bowes upon learning that Postal Service-branded postage meter ink cartridges were being sold.3 The Commission found that the record on licenses related to Postal Service operations to be insufficiently developed for it to determine whether those licenses should be terminated or authorized to continue.4 Further proceedings in this Phase II are needed to develop a more complete record regarding licensing programs for products related to Postal Service operations generally, as well as the 1 PRC Order No. 154, Review of Nonpostal Services Under the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act, December 19, 2008 (Order No. 154). 2 The Commission also indicated a separate docket would be established to develop regulations applicable to authorized nonpostal services. That docket will be initiated shortly. 3 Pitney Bowes Inc. Motion to Compel United States Postal Service to File a Complete List of Nonpostal Services, October 15, 2008. Pitney Bowes’ motion, supported by pleadings responsive to the matter, challenged the appropriateness of the Postal Service licensing its trademark for products related to Postal Service operations. See also PRC Order No. 126, Order Granting, In Part, Pitney Bowes Inc. Motion to Compel, November 4, 2008. 4 Order No. 154 at 76. Order No. 154 directed the Postal Service to ‘‘promptly notify the Commission of any other such licenses [that relate to postal operations] that may exist.’’ Id., n.146. This order is not intended to modify that directive. The Postal Service indicates five vendors are licensed to sell Mailing & Shipping products bearing the Postal Service’s intellectual property. Initial Response of the United States Postal Service to Order No. 74, June 9, 2008, at 22.
