Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace, Carrabassett, ME, 38857-38859 [2017-17257]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 157 / Wednesday, August 16, 2017 / Proposed Rules air traffic service routes, and reporting points. The Proposal The FAA is considering an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface within a 6-mile radius of Highland Medical Center Heliport, Scottsboro, AL, by recognizing the heliport’s name change, (formerly Jackson County Hospital), and adjusting the geographic coordinates of the heliport to coincide with the FAAs aeronautical database. Class E airspace designations are published in Paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.11A, dated August 3, 2016, and effective September 15, 2016, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. Regulatory Notices and Analyses The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. It, therefore: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a Regulatory Evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed rule, when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. § 71.1 [Amended] 2. The incorporation by reference in 14 CFR 71.1 of Federal Aviation Administration Order 7400.11A, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 3, 2016, and effective September 15, 2016, is amended as follows: ■ Paragraph 6005 Class E Airspace Areas Extending Upward From 700 Feet or More Above the Surface of the Earth. * * * * * ASO AL E5 Scottsboro, AL [Amended] Scottsboro Municipal—World Field Airport, AL (Lat. 34°41′19″ N., long. 86°00′21″ W.)

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking. AGENCY: The United States Copyright Office is proposing to amend the regulations governing the deposit requirements for certain types of literary works and musical compositions. Specifically, the proposed rule will apply to certain types of ‘‘literary monographs,’’ which are defined, in part, as literary works published in one volume or a finite number of separate volumes. The proposed rule also applies to musical compositions that are published in the United States in print formats—that is, compositions published as ‘‘copies’’ rather than solely as phonorecords, as referenced in the Copyright Act. Under the current regulations, two copies of the best edition are generally needed to register these types of works and to comply with the mandatory deposit requirement. Under the proposed rule, copyright owners will be able to satisfy both requirements for literary monographs by submitting one copy of the best edition of the work, although the Office will retain the right to demand a second copy under the mandatory deposit provision should the Library need it. Copyright owners will also be able to satisfy both requirements for certain musical compositions by submitting one copy of the best edition. As part of these changes, the proposed rule also clarifies the deposit requirements for musical compositions published both in print and phonorecord formats. For musical works (i.e., musical compositions) published in both formats, the Office will require the submission of the print version for purposes of copyright registration. If the musical composition is published only as a phonorecord, the applicant should submit the phonorecord. All of these changes will pmangrum on DSK3GDR082PROD with PROPOSALS SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:40 Aug 15, 2017 Jkt 241001 improve the efficiency of registration and mandatory deposit for both the Office and copyright owners alike, ensuring that the Office has an adequate registration record and continuing to make these works available to the Library of Congress when needed for use in its collections or other disposition. The Office invites public comment on this proposal. DATES: Comments on the proposed rule must be made in writing and must be received by the Copyright Office no later than October 2, 2017. ADDRESSES: For reasons of government efficiency, the Copyright Office is using the regulations.gov system for the submission and posting of public comments in this proceeding. All comments are therefore to be submitted electronically through regulations.gov. Specific instructions for submitting comments are available on the Copyright Office Web site at https:// copyright.gov/rulemaking/singlecopy/. If electronic submission of comments is not feasible due to lack of access to a computer and/or the Internet, please contact the Office using the contact information below for special instructions. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Robert J. Kasunic, Associate Register of Copyrights and Director of Registration Policy and Practice, by email at rkas@ loc.gov; Erik Bertin, Deputy Director of Registration Policy and Practice, by email at ebertin@loc.gov; or Cindy Abramson, Assistant General Counsel, by email at ciab@loc.gov. All can be reached by telephone by calling 202– 707–8040. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Under section 407 of the Copyright Act, when a work is published in the United States, the copyright owner or the owner of the exclusive right of publication is generally required to deposit two complete copies of the best edition of that work with the U.S. Copyright Office within three months after publication. 17 U.S.C. 407. ‘‘The ‘best edition’ of a work’’ is defined as ‘‘the edition, published in the United States at any time before the date of deposit, that the Library of Congress determines to be most suitable for its purposes.’’ 17 U.S.C. 101. The Act provides that copies deposited with the Office under section 407 are ‘‘for the use or disposition of the Library of Congress.’’ 17 U.S.C. 407(b). This is known as the ‘‘mandatory deposit’’ requirement. Separately, the Copyright Act’s provision governing copyright PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 38859 registration, section 408, specifies that, in the case of published works, an application for registration must be accompanied by ‘‘two complete copies or phonorecords of the best edition.’’ 17 U.S.C. 408(b)(2). To avoid duplication of deposits, section 408 specifies that copies or phonorecords deposited under section 407 ‘‘may be used to satisfy the deposit provisions’’ of section 408 if they ‘‘are accompanied by the prescribed application and fee.’’ 17 U.S.C. 408(b). Because the same copies can potentially be used for both registration and mandatory deposit, the deposit requirements set forth in sections 407 and 408 are generally the same. Compare 17 U.S.C. 407(a)(1)–(2) (requiring two complete copies of the best edition of the work for purposes of mandatory deposit) with 17 U.S.C. 408(b)(2) (requiring two complete copies of the best edition for the purpose of registering a published work). Sections 407 and 408 both give the Register of Copyrights (the ‘‘Register’’) broad authority to issue regulations concerning the specific nature of the copies that must be deposited, including the ability to exempt works from these statutory requirements. As relevant here, section 408 gives the Register authority to ‘‘require or permit, for particular classes [of works], . . . the deposit of only one copy . . . where two would normally be required’’ for copyright registration. 17 U.S.C. 408(c)(1). Similarly, section 407 gives the Register authority to issue regulations that ‘‘require [the] deposit of only one copy’’ for the purpose of mandatory deposit. 17 U.S.C. 407(c). The legislative history confirms that Congress intended the Register to exercise this authority when needed to improve efficiencies within the Copyright Office. In explaining the Register’s authority under section 407, Congress expressed the desire ‘‘to make the deposit requirements as flexible as possible, so that there will be no obligation to make deposits where it serves no purpose, so that only one copy or phonorecord may be deposited where two are not needed, and so that reasonable adjustments can be made to meet practical needs in special cases.’’ H.R. Rep. No. 94–1476, at 151 (1976). Similarly, the legislative history for section 408 explains that the ‘‘[d]eposit of one copy . . . rather than two would probably be justifiable . . . in any case where the Library of Congress has no need for the deposit’’ or where the copies ‘‘are bulky, unwieldy . . . or otherwise impractical to file and retain as records identifying the work registered.’’ Id. at 154.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.11A, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 3, 2016, and effective 
September 15, 2016. FAA Order 7400.11A is publicly available as listed 
in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11A lists 
Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and 
reporting points.

The Proposal

    The FAA is considering an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to amend Class E airspace extending upward 
from 700 feet or more above the surface within the 7-mile radius of 
Sugarloaf Regional Airport, Carrabassett, ME. A 14.3-mile extension to 
the north would be created extending from the 7-mile radius of the 
airport for the new RNAV-(GPS-A) approach for the airport, and for 
continued safety and management of IFR operations. The geographic 
coordinates of the airport also would be adjusted to coincide with the 
FAAs aeronautical database.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of 
FAA Order 7400.11A, dated August 3, 2016, and effective September 15, 
2016, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E 
airspace designation listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in the Order.

Regulatory Notices and Analyses

    The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves 
an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. 
It, therefore: (1) is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under 
Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ``significant rule'' under DOT 
Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); 
and (3) does not warrant preparation of a Regulatory Evaluation as the 
anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that 
will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this proposed rule, when promulgated, will not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities 
under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Environmental Review

    This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in 
accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies 
and Procedures'' prior to any FAA final regulatory action.
