SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    Section 804(b)(6) of the Copyright Act, title 17 of the United 
States Code, allows a party to file with the Copyright Royalty Judges a 
petition to initiate a proceeding to determine reasonable rates and 
terms for the use of certain copyrighted works in connection with 
noncommercial television and radio broadcasting under 17 U.S.C. 118 
every five years, starting in the year 2006. A proceeding was commenced 
in 2006, 71 FR 1453 (January 9, 2006); on November 30, 2007, the Judges 
announced the royalty rates and terms for the section 118 compulsory 
license for the period January 1, 2008, through December 31, 2012. 72 
FR 67646 (November 30, 2007). Thus, in accordance with section 
804(b)(6), a party may file a petition in 2011. However, no petition 
has been filed; consequently, section 803(b)(1)(A)(i)(V) requires the 
Judges to publish in the Federal Register by no later than January 5, 
2011, a notice commencing the proceeding for the license period 2013-
2017. Today's notice fulfills this requirement.

Petitions To Participate

    Petitions to Participate must be filed in accordance with Sec.  
351.1(b) of the Judges' regulations. See 37 CFR 351.1(b). Petitions to 
Participate must be accompanied by the $150 filing fee. Cash will not 
be accepted; therefore, parties must pay the filing fee with a check or 
money order made payable to the ``Copyright Royalty Board.'' If a check 
received in payment of the filing fee is returned for lack of 
sufficient funds, the corresponding Petition to Participate will be 
dismissed.
    Note that in accordance with 37 CFR 350.2 (Representation), only 
attorneys who are members of the bar in one or more states and in good 
standing will be allowed to represent parties before the Copyright 
Royalty Judges, unless a party is an individual who represents herself 
or himself.
