Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3507(a)(1)(D). This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for the Producer Price Index (PPI) Survey. The PPI is a measure of price movements as an indicator of inflationary trends for inventory valuation and as a measure of purchasing power of the dollar at the primary market level. The PPI is also used in market and economic research and as a basis for escalation in long-term contracts and purchase agreements. This information collection accumulates data for the ongoing monthly publication of the PPI family of indexes. This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection under Control Number 1220–0008. OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) years without renewal, and the current approval for this collection is scheduled to expire on July 31, 2014. The DOL seeks to extend PRA authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, without any change to existing requirements. The DOL notes that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. For additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on February 26, 2014 (79 FR 10843). Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in the ADDRESSES section within thirty (30) days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The Copyright Office is undertaking a study at the request of Congress to assess the state of U.S. law recognizing and protecting ‘‘making available’’ and ‘‘communication to the public’’ rights for copyright holders, particularly in the digital age. As part of its review, the Office issued a Notice of Inquiry (the ‘‘Notice’’) on February 25, 2014,1 seeking comments from the public on the following general issues: (1) How the existing bundle of exclusive rights under Title 17 covers the making available and communication to the public rights in the context of digital ondemand transmissions such as peer-topeer networks, streaming services, and music downloads, as well as more broadly in the digital environment; (2) how foreign laws have interpreted and implemented the relevant provisions of the WIPO Internet Treaties; 2 and (3) the feasibility and necessity of amending U.S. law to strengthen or clarify our law in this area. The Office also posed additional questions on each of these topics. The Office received twenty-seven written comments from various interested parties in response to the Notice. On May 5, 2014, the Office held a public roundtable in Washington, DC to hear stakeholder views on these issues. Commenters and participants in the roundtable expressed a variety of views on a broad range of topics. The Notice, public comments, the agenda for the public roundtable, and the transcript of the roundtable proceedings are posted on the Copyright Office Web site.3 A video recording of the roundtable will be posted on the Web site when it becomes available. Commenters and roundtable participants generally agreed that current U.S. law, properly interpreted, provides rights that are equivalent to the making available and communication to the public rights required by the WIPO Internet Treaties. There was disagreement, however, over whether 1 Study on the Right of Making Available; Comments and Public Roundtable, 79 FR 10571 (Feb. 25, 2014). 2 WIPO Copyright Treaty art. 8, Dec. 20, 1996, 36 I.L.M. 65; WIPO Performances and Phonograms Treaty arts. 10, 14, Dec. 20, 1996, 36 I.L.M. 76. 3 See Making Available Study, U.S. Copyright Office, http://www.copyright.gov/docs/ making_available/. PO 00000 Frm 00064 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 41309 and how particular provisions of Title 17 may apply to various activities in the digital context. For example, several stakeholders argued that the unauthorized uploading of a copyrighted work to a shared network folder that is accessible to the public constitutes a violation of the exclusive right of distribution under 17 U.S.C. 106(3). Others disagreed, arguing that direct or circumstantial evidence that another user has downloaded a copy of that file is necessary to establish an infringement of the distribution right by the uploader. The roundtable discussion and initial written comments also highlighted issues such as whether a digital file is a ‘‘material object[]’’ for purposes of the statutory definitions of ‘‘copies’’ and ‘‘phonorecords’’; 4 the relevance of legislative history to the construction of the distribution right; the role of secondary liability theories in assessing the United States’ implementation of the relevant treaty provisions; and the use of evidence provided by a copyright owner’s investigator in digital filesharing cases. Following the Office’s roundtable discussions, on June 25, 2014, the Supreme Court decided American Broadcasting Cos., Inc. v. Aereo, Inc.5 The case involved a service, Aereo, that used thousands of dime-sized antennas to allow subscribers to capture and watch television programs over the Internet as the programs were being broadcast over the air. When a subscriber selected a program to watch on Aereo’s Web site, the system would create a subscriber-specific copy of the program that would then be streamed to the subscriber’s computer or Internetconnected device. The Court held that this activity infringed the exclusive right of the owners of the copyrights in the programs to perform those works publicly.6 A critical aspect of the Court’s decision was its interpretation of Title 17’s ‘‘Transmit Clause.’’ That clause provides that the public performance right afforded to copyright owners under Section 106 includes the exclusive right ‘‘to transmit or otherwise communicate a performance . . . of the work . . . to the public, by means of any device or process, whether the members of the public capable of receiving the performance . . . receive it in the same place or in separate places and at the same time or at different times.’’ 7 4 See 17 U.S.C. 101. U.S. ___, No. 13–461, 2014 U.S. LEXIS 4496 (June 25, 2014). 6 See 17 U.S.C. 106(4). 7 Id. section 101 (definition of ‘‘To perform . . . a work ‘publicly’ ’’). 5 573 E:\FR\FM\15JYN1.SGM 15JYN1
