Download as PDF cprice-sewell on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 173 / Wednesday, September 9, 2009 / Notices for the retransmission to cable subscribers of over-the-air television and radio broadcast signals. See 17 U.S.C. 111(d). These royalties are then distributed to copyright owners whose works were included in a qualifying transmission and who timely filed a claim for royalties. Allocation of the royalties collected occurs in one of two ways. In the first instance, these funds will be distributed through a negotiated settlement among the parties. 17 U.S.C. 111(d)(4)(A). If the claimants do not reach an agreement with respect to the royalties, the Copyright Royalty Judges (‘‘Judges’’) must conduct a proceeding to determine the distribution of any royalties that remain in controversy. 17 U.S.C. 111(d)(4)(B). On August 12, 2009, representatives of the Phase I claimant categories (the ‘‘Phase I Parties’’) 1 filed with the Judges a motion requesting a partial distribution of 50% of the 2007 cable royalty funds. Under section 801(b)(3)(C) of the Copyright Act, the Judges must publish a notice in the Federal Register seeking responses to the motion for partial distribution to ascertain whether any claimant entitled to receive such fees has a reasonable objection to the requested distribution before ruling on the motion. Consequently, by today’s Notice, the Judges seek comments from interested claimants on whether any reasonable objection exists that would preclude the distribution of 50% of the 2007 cable royalty funds to the Phase I Parties. The Judges also seek comment on the existence and extent of any controversies to the 2007 cable royalty funds at Phase I with respect to the 50% of those funds that would remain if the partial distribution is granted. In Phase I of a cable royalty distribution, royalties are distributed to certain categories of broadcast programming that have been retransmitted by cable systems. The categories have traditionally been movies and syndicated television series, sports programming, commercial and noncommercial broadcaster-owned programming, religious programming, music, public radio programming, and Canadian programming. In Phase II of a cable royalty distribution, royalties are distributed to claimants within each of the Phase I categories. The Judges must be advised of the existence and extent of all Phase I controversies by the end of the comment 1 The ‘‘Phase I Parties’’ are the Program Suppliers, Joint Sports Claimants, Public Television Claimants, the National Association of Broadcasters, the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, Broadcast Music, Inc., SESAC, Inc., Canadian Claimants, National Public Radio, and the Devotional Claimants. VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:47 Sep 08, 2009 Jkt 217001 period. It will not consider any controversies that come to their attention after the close of that period. The Motion of the Phase I Claimants for Partial Distribution is posted on the Copyright Royalty Board Web site at http://www.loc.gov/crb. Dated: September 3, 2009. James Scott Sledge, Chief U.S. Copyright Royalty Judge. [FR Doc.
