The Federal Reserve Bank will provide advice of the debit to the RDFI. (g) Reclamation disputes. Where the Service, in accordance with paragraph (b) of this section, has instructed a Federal Reserve Bank to debit the account of a financial institution for the 45-day Amount, the financial institution may file a dispute notice challenging the reclamation. A dispute notice filed under this paragraph must be in writing, and must be sent to the Claims Manager, Department of the Treasury, Financial Management Service, at the address listed on the notice of the debit, or to such other address as the Service may publish in the Green Book. The reclamation dispute notice must include supporting documentation. The Service will not consider reclamation dispute notices received more than 90 days after the date on which the financial institution’s reserve account was debited. The Claims Manager, or an authorized designee, will make every effort to decide any dispute notice submitted under this section within 60 days. If it is not possible to render a decision within 60 days, the Claims Manager or an authorized designee will notify the financial institution of the delay and may take up to an additional 60 days to render a decision. If, based on the evidence provided, the Claims Manager, or an authorized designee, finds that the financial institution has proved, by a preponderance of the evidence, that debit was improper or excessive, the Service will notify the financial institution in writing and, within ten days of the decision, recredit the financial institution’s reserve account for the amount improperly debited. Such notice shall serve as the final agency determination under the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 701 et seq.). No civil suit may be filed until the financial institution has filed a dispute notice under this section, and the Service has provided notice of its final determination. 6.

Subject of Inquiry The Copyright Office seeks comment on the question of whether and how Title 17 provides a termination right to authors (and other persons specified by statute) when the grant was made prior to 1978 and the work was created on or after January 1, 1978. For purposes of illustration, please note the following examples: Example 1: A composer signed an agreement with a music publisher in 1977 transferring the copyrights to future musical compositions pursuant to a negotiated fee schedule. She created numerous compositions under the agreement between 1978 and 1983, some of which were subsequently published by the publishertransferee. Several of these achieved immediate popular success and have been economically viable ever since. The original contract has not been amended or superseded. Example 2: A writer signed an agreement with a book publisher in 1977 to deliver a work of nonfiction. The work was completed and delivered on time in 1979 and was published in 1980. The book’s initial print run sold out slowly, but because the author’s subsequent works were critically acclaimed, it was released with an updated cover last year and is now a best seller. The rights remained with the publisher all along and the original royalty structure continues to apply. Questions In order to better understand the application of sections 304(c), 304(d) and 203 to the grants of transfers and licenses discussed above, the Copyright Office seeks comments as follows: A.

B. Interpretation. Are the grants of transfers or licenses discussed above terminable under Title 17 as currently codified? If so, under which provision? What is the basis for your determination? Are there state or federal laws other than copyright that are relevant? Is delivery of the work by the grantor to the grantee relevant to the question of termination? Is publication relevant? C. Recommendations. Do you have any recommendations with respect to the grants of transfers or licenses illustrated above? D. Other Issues.

Subject of Inquiry

    The Copyright Office seeks comment on the question of whether and 
how Title 17 provides a termination right to authors (and other persons 
specified by statute) when the grant was made prior to 1978 and the 
work was created on or after January 1, 1978. For purposes of 
illustration, please note the following examples:

    Example 1:  A composer signed an agreement with a music 
publisher in 1977 transferring the copyrights to future musical 
compositions pursuant to a negotiated fee schedule. She created 
numerous compositions under the agreement between 1978 and 1983, 
some of which were subsequently published by the publisher-
transferee. Several of these achieved immediate popular success and 
have been economically viable ever since. The original contract has 
not been amended or superseded.
    Example 2:  A writer signed an agreement with a book publisher 
in 1977 to deliver a work of nonfiction. The work was completed and

structure continues to apply.
