Statutory Basis The Exchange believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with Section 6(b) of the Act,6 in general, and furthers the objectives of Sections 6(b)(4) and (5) of the Act,7 in particular, because it provides for the equitable allocation of reasonable dues, fees, and 4 See File No. SR–NYSEArca–2015–108 (November 2, 2015). 5 See e.g., NASDAQ Options Market—Fees and Rebates, available at: http://www.nasdaqtrader. com/Micro.aspx?id=optionsPricing (charging noncustomers take fees of $0.50 per contract in penny pilot issues other than in certain select symbols, for which the take fee is $0.55).

way as to make the data individually identifiable by inference.
    g. For Litigation--To disclose information to the Department of 
Justice, or in a proceeding before a court, adjudicative body, or other 
administrative body before which OPM is authorized to appear, when: (1)
