SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On August 23, 2011, the Alliance of Artists and Recording Companies (‘‘AARC’’), on behalf of itself and claimants with which it has reached settlements (the ‘‘Settling Claimants’’) filed with the Judges a Notice of Settlement and Request for Partial Distribution of the 2010 DART Sound Recordings Fund Featured Recording Artists and Copyright Owners Subfunds Royalties (‘‘Notice and Request’’). In the Notice and Request, AARC states that the Settling Claimants have reached a settlement among themselves concerning distribution of the 2010 DART Sound Recordings Fund Royalties. With respect to the Featured Recording Artists Subfund, AARC represents that it has reached settlements with 215 of the 217 other claimants for that subfund and that the nonsettling claimants have ‘‘de minimis record sales of 2,163 and 13, respectively, in a universe of over one billion claimants’ sound recordings sold in 2010.’’ Notice and Request at 2. With respect to the Copyright Owners Subfund, AARC represents that it has reached settlements with 218 of the 225 other claimants. AARC represents that the nonsettling claimants have combined sales of 3,010 ‘‘in a universe of over one billion claimants’ sound recordings sold in 2010.’’ Notice and Request at 2. AARC requests a partial distribution of 98% from each of the subfunds pursuant to Section 801(b)(3)(C) of the Copyright Act. Under that section of the Copyright Act, before ruling on a partial distribution motion the Judges must publish a notice in the Federal Register seeking responses to the motion to ascertain whether any claimant entitled to receive such royalty fees has a reasonable objection to the proposed distribution. Consequently, this Notice seeks comments from interested claimants on whether any reasonable objection exists that would preclude the distribution of 98% of the 2010 DART Sound Recordings Royalty funds (both subfunds) to the Settling PO 00000 Frm 00092 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 56483 Claimants. The Judges must be advised of the existence and extent of all such objections by the end of the comment period. The Judges will not consider any objections with respect to the partial distribution motion that come to their attention after the close of that period. The Notice and Request is posted on the Copyright Royalty Board Web site at http://www.loc.gov/crb. Dated: September 7, 2011. James Scott Sledge, Chief U.S. Copyright Royalty Judge.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On August 23, 2011, the Alliance of Artists 
and Recording Companies (``AARC''), on behalf of itself and claimants 
with which it has reached settlements (the ``Settling Claimants'') 
filed with the Judges a Notice of Settlement and Request for Partial 
Distribution of the 2010 DART Sound Recordings Fund Featured Recording 
Artists and Copyright Owners Subfunds Royalties (``Notice and 
Request''). In the Notice and Request, AARC states that the Settling 
Claimants have reached a settlement among themselves concerning 
distribution of the 2010 DART Sound Recordings Fund Royalties. With 
respect to the Featured Recording Artists Subfund, AARC represents that 
it has reached settlements with 215 of the 217 other claimants for that 
subfund and that the nonsettling claimants have ``de minimis record 
sales of 2,163 and 13, respectively, in a universe of over one billion 
claimants' sound recordings sold in 2010.'' Notice and Request at 2. 
With respect to the Copyright Owners Subfund, AARC represents that it 
has reached settlements with 218 of the 225 other claimants. AARC 
represents that the nonsettling claimants have combined sales of 3,010 
``in a universe of over one billion claimants' sound recordings sold in 
2010.'' Notice and Request at 2. AARC requests a partial distribution 
of 98% from each of the subfunds pursuant to Section 801(b)(3)(C) of 
the Copyright Act. Under that section of the Copyright Act, before 
ruling on a partial distribution motion the Judges must publish a 
notice in the Federal Register seeking responses to the motion to 
ascertain whether any claimant entitled to receive such royalty fees 
has a reasonable objection to the proposed distribution. Consequently, 
this Notice seeks comments from interested claimants on whether any 
reasonable objection exists that would preclude the distribution of 98% 
of the 2010 DART Sound Recordings Royalty funds (both subfunds) to the 
Settling Claimants. The Judges must be advised of the existence and 
extent of all such objections by the end of the comment period. The 
Judges will not consider any objections with respect to the partial 
distribution motion that come to their attention after the close of 
that period.
    The Notice and Request is posted on the Copyright Royalty Board Web 
site at http://www.loc.gov/crb.
