Purpose The Exchange proposes to make a correction to the PHLX Fee Schedule, Section IX, entitled ‘‘NASDAQ OMX PSX FEES’’ under the ‘‘Market Data Distributor Fees’’ section to correct an inadvertent error in the definition of ‘‘Direct Access’’ contained in a recent filing (‘‘previous filing’’).3 The previous filing intended to amend the fee schedule to correct an anomaly that effectively exempted certain customers residing within the Exchange’s colocation facility from paying a monthly fee for direct access to Exchange data, while customers that received data from an extranet and resided outside the colocation facility were assessed the fee. The previous filing also deleted outdated verbiage in the fee schedule in order to eliminate confusion regarding application of the fees. However, the rule language contained an inadvertent error that effectively still exempts certain co-located customers receiving Exchange data feeds from paying a direct access fee. The definition should be corrected to make clear that the definition of ‘‘Direct Access’’ is also applicable to a telecommunications interface with the Exchange for receiving Exchange data feeds (and not Exchange data) within the Exchange co-location facility as well. The Exchange is making this change due to an inadvertent clerical error in the previous filing and is making no other changes to Section IX. 2.

June 1, 2011.
    Pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 
(``Act''),\1\ and Rule 19b-4 thereunder,\2\ notice is hereby given that

and III, below, which Items have been prepared by the Exchange. The 
Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

I. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Terms of Substance 
of the Proposed Rule Change

    The Exchange proposes to make a correction to the definition of 
``Direct Access'' in the fee schedule. The Exchange shall implement 
this rule proposal immediately.
    The text of the proposed rule change is available on the Exchange's 
Web site at http://nasdaqomxphlx.cchwallstreet.com/NASDAQOMXPHLX/Filings/, at the principal office of the Exchange, and at the 
Commission's Public Reference Room.

II. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Purpose of, and 
Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change

    In its filing with the Commission, the Exchange included statements

[[Page 33013]]

concerning the purpose of and basis for the proposed rule change and 
discussed any comments it received on the proposed rule change. The 
text of these statements may be examined at the places specified in 
Item IV below. The Exchange has prepared summaries, set forth in 
sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant aspects of such 
statements.

A. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Purpose of, and 
Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change

1. Purpose
    The Exchange proposes to make a correction to the PHLX Fee 
Schedule, Section IX, entitled ``NASDAQ OMX PSX FEES'' under the 
``Market Data Distributor Fees'' section to correct an inadvertent 
error in the definition of ``Direct Access'' contained in a recent 
filing (``previous filing'').\3\ The previous filing intended to amend 
the fee schedule to correct an anomaly that effectively exempted 
certain customers residing within the Exchange's co-location facility 
from paying a monthly fee for direct access to Exchange data, while 
customers that received data from an extranet and resided outside the 
co-location facility were assessed the fee. The previous filing also 
deleted outdated verbiage in the fee schedule in order to eliminate 
confusion regarding application of the fees. However, the rule language 
contained an inadvertent error that effectively still exempts certain 
co-located customers receiving Exchange data feeds from paying a direct 
access fee.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ Securities Exchange Act Release No. 63443 (December 6, 
2010), 75 FR 77028, (December 10, 2010) (SR-Phlx-2010-170).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The definition should be corrected to make clear that the 
definition of ``Direct Access'' is also applicable to a 
telecommunications interface with the Exchange for receiving Exchange 
data feeds (and not Exchange data) within the Exchange co-location 
facility as well. The Exchange is making this change due to an 
inadvertent clerical error in the previous filing and is making no 
other changes to Section IX.
2. Statutory Basis
    The Exchange believes that the proposed rule change is consistent 
with the provisions of Section 6 of the Act,\4\ in general, and with 
Sections 6(b)(5) of the Act,\5\ in particular. The proposal is designed 
to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices, to promote 
just and equitable principles of trade, to foster cooperation and 
coordination with persons engaged in regulating, clearing, settling, 
processing information with respect to, and facilitating transactions 
in securities, to remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a 
free and open market and a national market system, and, in general, to 
protect investors and the public interest. The proposed rule change is 
to correct an inadvertent error in the definition of ``Direct Access'' 
in Section IX of its Fee Schedule.

    \5\ 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

B. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement on Burden on Competition

    The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change will 
impose any burden on competition not necessary or appropriate in 
furtherance of the purposes of the Act, as amended.

C. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement on Comments on the Proposed 
Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others

    No written comments were either solicited or received.

III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for 
Commission Action

    Pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act \6\ and Rule 19b-4(f)(3) 
thereunder,\7\ the Exchange has designated this proposal as one that is 
concerned solely with the administration of the self-regulatory 
organization. Accordingly, the Exchange believes that its proposal 
should become immediately effective.

change, the Commission summarily may temporarily suspend such rule 
change if it appears to the Commission that such action is: (i) 
Necessary or appropriate in the public interest; (ii) for the 
protection of investors; or (iii) otherwise in furtherance of the 
purposes of the Act. If the Commission takes such action, the 
Commission shall institute proceedings to determine whether the
