SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In 1995, Congress enacted the Digital Performance Right in Sound Recordings Act of 1995 (‘‘DPRA’’), Public Law 104– 39, which created an exclusive right for copyright owners of sound recordings, subject to certain limitations, to perform publicly sound recordings by means of certain digital audio transmissions. Among the limitations on the performance right was the creation of a compulsory license for nonexempt noninteractive digital subscription transmissions. 17 U.S.C. 114(f). Section 114 was later amended with the passage of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (‘‘DMCA’’), Public Law 105–304, to cover additional digital audio transmissions, including eligible nonsubscription transmissions.1 In addition to expanding the section 114 license, the DMCA also created a statutory license to allow a service to make any necessary ephemeral reproductions to facilitate the digital transmission of the sound recording. 17 U.S.C. 112(e). Licensees may operate under these licenses provided they pay the royalty fees and comply with the terms set by the Copyright Royalty Judges (‘‘Judges’’). On May 1, 2007, the Judges issued their final determination setting rates and terms for the section 112 and 114 licenses for the period 2006–2010. 72 FR 24084.
