Background Section 204(d) of the MagnusonStevens Act (16 U.S.C. 1824(d)) authorizes the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary) to issue a transshipment permit authorizing a vessel other than a vessel of the United States to engage in fishing consisting solely of transporting fish or fish products at sea from a point within the United States Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) or, with the concurrence of a state, within the boundaries of that state, to a point outside the United States. In addition, Public Law 104–297, section 105(e), directs the Secretary to issue section 204(d) permits to up to 14 Canadian transport vessels that are not equipped for fish harvesting or processing, for the transshipment of Atlantic herring harvested by United States fishermen and to be used solely in sardine processing. Transshipment must occur from within the boundaries of the State of Maine or within the portion of the EEZ east of the line 69 degrees 30 minutes west and within 12 nautical miles from Maine’s seaward boundary. Section 204(d)(3)(D) of the MagnusonStevens Act provides that an application may not be approved until the Secretary determines that ‘‘no owner or operator of a vessel of the United States which has adequate capacity to perform the transportation for which the application is submitted has indicated . . . an interest in performing the transportation at fair and reasonable rates.’’ NMFS is publishing this notice as part of its effort to make such a determination with respect to the application described below.

Please direct all media inquiries to the Office of the Chief Communications Officer, USPTO, at (571) 272–8400. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: The Department of Commerce established the Internet Policy Task Force (Task Force) in 2010 to identify leading public policy and operational issues impacting the U.S. private sector’s ability to realize the potential for economic growth and job creation through the Internet. The Task Force has released two reports addressing copyright issues and the Internet, based on extensive stakeholder consultation and public input. The Task Force’s July 2013 report, Copyright Policy, Creativity, and Innovation in the Digital Economy (Green Paper),1 was a comprehensive overview of copyright policy in the digital environment. In October 2013, the USPTO and NTIA published a request for public comments 2 relating to three areas of work flowing out of the Green Paper, including: (1) The legal framework for the creation of remixes; 3 (2) the relevance and scope of the first sale doctrine in the digital environment; 4 and (3) the appropriate calibration of statutory damages in the contexts of individual file-sharers and secondary liability for mass online services.5 Following the release of the Green Paper, stakeholders provided input on these policy issues through two rounds of written comments, a 1 The Green Paper is available at http:// www.uspto.gov/sites/default/files/news/ publications/copyrightgreenpaper.pdf. 2 Request for Comments on Department of Commerce Green Paper, Copyright Policy, Creativity, and Innovation in the Digital Economy, 78 FR 61337–61341, available at https:// www.ntia.doc.gov/files/ntia/publications/ ntia_pto_rfc_10032013.pdf. 3 For a definition of remixes, please see the Green Paper, fn. 1 above, at p.28. 4 For information about the first sale doctrine, please see the Green Paper, id. at p.35. 5 For information about statutory damages, please see the Green Paper, id. at p.51.

As to the first sale doctrine, based on a weighing of benefits and risks, the Task Force determined that amending the law to extend the doctrine to digital transmissions of copyrighted works was not advisable at the time. However, the Task Force did recommend non-legislative action to address certain concerns expressed by a number of stakeholders about the online marketplace for copyrighted works. These related to consumers’ understanding of what they have purchased when they pay for copies of works delivered online.8 The Task Force concluded that consumers would benefit from more information on the nature of these transactions, including whether they are paying for temporary access to content or for ownership of a copy, in order to instill greater confidence and enhance participation in the online marketplace.9 The Task Force therefore recommended the creation of a multistakeholder process to establish best practices to improve consumers’ understanding of license terms and restrictions in connection with online transactions involving creative works. B. The Proposed Focus of This Meeting In the White Paper, the Task Force concluded that when consumers download copies of works (such as eBooks, music, and motion pictures), they do not appear to have a clear understanding of what they can legally do with those copies. This is due in part to the length and opacity of most End User License Agreements (EULAs).10 Other factors that may contribute to consumer confusion include the labeling of the ‘‘buy’’ button, and the lack of clear and conspicuous information regarding the ownership status of copies obtained by means of digital transmissions. Commenters noted that it is common for online 6 More information can be found at https:// www.uspto.gov/learning-and-resources/ip-policy/ copyright/white-paper-remixes-first-sale-andstatutory-damages. 7 The White Paper is available at http:// www.uspto.gov/sites/default/files/documents/ copyrightwhitepaper.pdf. 8 White Paper, pp. 55–58. 9 White Paper, p. 68. 10 For purposes of this discussion, a EULA is a contract between a licensor and purchaser, establishing the scope of the purchaser’s rights to use an acquired download of copyrighted content. EULAs are often available only in digital form, presented as a click-through where the user is required to accept or reject the terms. E:\FR\FM\21MRN1.SGM 21MRN1

Background

    Section 204(d) of the Magnuson-Stevens Act (16 U.S.C. 1824(d)) 
authorizes the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary) to issue a 
transshipment permit authorizing a vessel other than a vessel of the 
United States to engage in fishing consisting solely of transporting 
fish or fish products at sea from a point within the United States 
Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) or, with the concurrence of a state, 
within the boundaries of that state, to a point outside the United 
States. In addition, Public Law 104-297, section 105(e), directs the 
Secretary to issue section 204(d) permits to up to 14 Canadian 
transport vessels that are not equipped for fish harvesting or 
processing, for the transshipment of Atlantic herring harvested by 
United States fishermen and to be used solely in sardine processing. 
Transshipment must occur from within the boundaries of the State of 
Maine or within the portion of the EEZ east of the line 69 degrees 30
