The Team is tasked with reviewing and providing recommendations for the ongoing research and monitoring, outreach, and law enforcement components of the Evaluation Plan. The SAFMC extended the snapper grouper bottom fishing restrictions for the Oculina Experimental Closed Area (OECA) for an indefinite period in Snapper Grouper Amendment 13A. The amendment required that the size and configuration of the OECA be reviewed within three years of the implementation date of 13A and that a 10-year re-evaluation be conducted. The re-evaluation is the subject of this webinar. The items of discussion during the data webinar are as follows: 1. Participants will initiate discussions on the re-evaluation of the OECA. 2. Breakout sessions will be held with the Evaluation Team to discuss Research & Monitoring, Outreach, and Law Enforcement components of the Evaluation Team. Although non-emergency issues not contained in this agenda may come before this group for discussion, those issues may not be the subject of formal action during this meeting. Action will be restricted to those issues specifically identified in this notice and any issues arising after publication of this notice that require emergency action under section 305(c) of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, provided the public has been notified of the intent to take final action to address the emergency. Special Accommodations This meeting is accessible to people with disabilities. Requests for auxiliary aids should be directed to the SAFMC office (see ADDRESSES) at least 10 business days prior to the meeting. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Note: The times and sequence specified in this agenda are subject to change.

ACTION: Notice of Interim Patent Term Extension. AGENCY: The United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued an order granting interim extension under 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5) for a one-year interim extension of the term of U.S. Patent No. 5,610,059. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mary C. Till by telephone at (571) 272– 7755; by mail marked to her attention and addressed to the Commissioner for Patents, Mail Stop Hatch-Waxman PTE, P.O. Box 1450, Alexandria, VA 22313– 1450; by fax marked to her attention at (571) 273–7755; or by email to Mary.Till@uspto.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 156 of Title 35, United States Code, generally provides that the term of a patent may be extended for a period of up to five years if the patent claims a product, or a method of making or using a product, that has been subject to certain defined regulatory review, and that the patent may be extended for interim periods of up to one year if the regulatory review is anticipated to extend beyond the expiration date of the patent. On December 27, 2013, the Arizona Board of Regents, on behalf of the University of Arizona, the patent owner of record, timely filed an application under 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5) for an interim extension of the term of U.S. Patent No. 5,610,059. The patent claims the veterinary biological product monovalent Lawsonia intracellularis bacterin vaccine. The application indicates that Intervet, a licensee of the patent owner, submitted two Product License Applications (PLA) to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). In a letter dated April 12, 2011, USDA acknowledged receipt of the PLA for a multi-valent vaccine and assigned the vaccine product code 49L5.RO. In a letter dated December 22, 2011, USDA acknowledged receipt of a PLA for a monovalent vaccine of Lawsonia intracellularis bacterin and assigned the vaccine product code 2799.20. Review of the application indicates that, except for permission to market or SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00042 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 use the product commercially, the subject patent would be eligible for an extension of the patent term under 35 U.S.C. 156, and that the patent should be extended for one year as required by 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5)(B). Because the regulatory review period will continue beyond the original expiration date of the patent, March 11, 2014, interim extension of the patent term under 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5) is appropriate. An interim extension under 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5) of the term of U.S. Patent No. 5,610,059 is granted for a period of one year from the original expiration date of the patent. Dated: February 14, 2014.

Abstract: Section 4d(c) of the Commodity Exchange Act (CEA), 7 U.S.C. 6d(c), requires the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) to consult with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and issue such rules, regulations, or orders as are necessary to avoid duplicative or conflicting regulations applicable to firms that are fully registered with the SEC as brokers or dealers (brokerdealers) and the CFTC as futures commission merchants (FCMs) involving provisions of the CEA that pertain to the treatment of customer funds. The CFTC, jointly with the SEC, issued regulations requiring such dually-registered firms to make choices as to how its customers’ transactions in security futures products (SFP) will be treated, either as securities transactions held in a securities account or as futures transactions held in a futures account. How an account is treated is important in the unlikely event of the insolvency of the firm.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: Part 41 Relating to Security Futures Products (OMB Control

The CFTC, jointly with the SEC, issued regulations requiring such 
dually-registered firms to make choices as to how its customers' 
transactions in security futures products (SFP) will be treated, either 
as securities transactions held in a securities account or as futures 
transactions held in a futures account. How an account is treated is 
important in the unlikely event of the insolvency of the firm. Only 
securities accounts receive insurance protection under provisions of 
the Securities Investor Protection Act. By contrast, only futures 
accounts are subject to the protections provided by the segregation
