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.

    \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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 period. It will not consider 
any controversies that come to their attention after the close of that 
period.
