The royalties at issue in this proceeding are being distributed in two phases. For broadcast years 2004 and 2005, the Judges conducted Phase I hearings, after which they determined the percentage allocation of the royalties among representatives of the major categories of copyrightable content (movies, sports programming, music, etc.). For broadcast years 2006 through 2009, the parties settled their controversies. The Judges authorized a final Phase I distribution for all six years at issue currently by order dated February 17, 2012 1. The Phase I distribution order for broadcast years 2004 through 2009 provided for retention of $20 million in cable royalty funds, divided equally among each of the six years, and $13 million in satellite royalty funds,2 divided equally among each of the six years, pending resolution of remaining controversies regarding proper distribution and allocation of those funds. The purpose of this Phase II proceeding is to allocate the royalties among the various copyright owners within each category. Commencement of Phase II Proceeding The Judges determine that a Phase II controversy exists as to the distribution of the retained cable royalty funds deposited for broadcast years 2004 through 2009, inclusive. On July 27, 2012, three Phase I participants, Joint Sports Claimants, Program Suppliers, and Devotional Claimants filed a Joint Motion to Initiate Phase II Proceedings (Joint Motion), representing that all other Phase I category royalty recipients had resolved their remaining controversies and seeking to consolidate the proceeding for years 2004–05 with 1 See Order on Motions for Distribution in Docket Numbers 2007–3 CRB CD 2004–05; 2008–4 CRB CD 2006; 2009–6 CRB CD 2007; 2010–6 CRB CD 2008; 2011–7 CRB CD 2009; 2010–2 CRB SD 2004–07; 2010–7 CRB SD 2008; 2011–8 CRB SD 2009. 2 This notice relates only to cable royalties; satellite royalties shall be the subject of a separate notice.
