SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Each year cable systems must submit royalty payments to the Register of Copyrights as required by the statutory license set forth in sec. 111 of the Copyright Act for the retransmission to cable subscribers of over-the-air television and radio broadcast signals. See 17 U.S.C. 111(d). The Copyright Royalty Judges (Judges) oversee distribution of royalties to copyright owners whose works were included in a qualifying transmission and who timely filed a claim for royalties. Allocation of the royalties collected occurs in one of two ways. In the first instance, the Judges may authorize distribution in accordance with a negotiated settlement among all claiming parties. 17 U.S.C. 111(d)(4)(A). If all claimants do not reach agreement with respect to the royalties, the Judges must conduct a proceeding to determine the distribution of any royalties that remain in controversy. 17 U.S.C. 111(d)(4)(B). Alternatively, the Judges may, on motion of claimants and on notice to all interested parties, authorize a partial distribution of royalties, reserving on deposit sufficient funds to resolve identified disputes. 17 U.S.C. 111(d)(4)(C), 801(b)(3)(C). On April 21, 2017, Worldwide Subsidy Group LLC dba Independent Producers Group (‘‘IPG’’) filed with the Judges a motion requesting a partial distribution amounting to 21.52% of the cable royalty funds for 2000–2003 in the Devotional Category pursuant to sec. 801(b)(3)(C) of the Copyright Act. 17 VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:22 Mar 29, 2019 Jkt 247001 U.S.C. 801(b)(3)(C). Motion at 1, 5. IPG arrived at 21.52% by multiplying IPG’s final distribution of 28.7% of funds in the Devotional Category for 1999 by 75%, On April 26, 2017, the Settling Devotional Claimants (‘‘SDC’’) filed an opposition to IPG’s motion arguing, among other things, that IPG is not an established claimant (but rather is a ‘‘commercial entity representing claimants’’) and that ‘‘there are strong reasons to doubt that its single final distribution for 1999 will be predictive of results in later years.’’ SDC Opposition at 1–2. The SDC also questioned whether IPG would be willing and able to disgorge funds if necessary. Id. On May 2, 2017, IPG replied to the SDC’s opposition, contending that IPG was already deemed an ‘‘established claimant’’ in the program suppliers’ category with respect to 2004–2009 cable royalties and that IPG should not be precluded from receiving a partial distribution merely because it is a claimant representative as opposed to an actual claimant. IPG Reply at 2–3. IPG noted that ‘‘[t]he vast majority of entities receiving advances are ‘agents’ of claimants.’’ Id. at 3. IPG argues that the SDC seeks to distinguish between IPG and other agents, such as the Motion Picture Association of America (‘‘MPAA’’), the National Association of Broadcasters (‘‘NAB’’), and PBS, which have received partial distributions in the past, on the ground that MPAA, NAB, and PBS are not commercially motivated, unlike IPG. IPG questioned the relevancy of the distinction between for-profit organizations and not for profit organizations, contending that ‘‘while many of the entities receiving advances are ostensibly noncommercial, they nonetheless represent (and have received partial distributions on behalf of) commercially motivated agents and commercially motivated claimants.’’ Id. at 4. IPG argued that were there such a rule precluding forprofit entities from receiving partial distributions, IPG would not have been permitted to receive a partial distribution of royalties in the program suppliers’ category. Id. at 4–5.1 IPG dismissed the SDC’s concerns regarding IPG’s ability or willingness to disgorge funds if necessary as ‘‘unsubstantiated 1 For its part, the SDC concedes that, based on IPG’s final award for 2000–2003 in the program suppliers’ category, MPAA conceded that IPG was entitled to a partial distribution in that category for 2004–2009 and that the Judges accepted MPAA’s concession. Nevertheless, the SDC ‘‘did not and do not make such a concession in the Devotional category based on IPG’s final award for a single year.’’ SDC Opposition at n.2. PO 00000 Frm 00107 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and non-sequitur ‘suspicions’ of IPG’s alleged insolvency and alleged refusal to abide by its contractual relationships.’’ Id. at 8. Prior to ruling on a motion for partial distribution filed under § 801(b)(3)(C) of the Copyright Act, the Judges must publish a notice in the Federal Register to determine whether any interested claimant entitled to receive such royalty fees has a reasonable objection to the partial distribution. Accordingly, this Notice seeks comments from interested claimants on whether any reasonable objection exists that would preclude the distribution of 21.52% of the 2000–2003 cable royalty funds in the Devotional category to IPG. As the Judges have commenced a distribution proceeding concerning 2000–03 cable royalties, only claimants that have filed petitions to participate in the proceeding (or are included in a petition to participate filed on their behalf) are ‘‘interested claimants’’ for purposes of this Notice. Interested claimants objecting to the partial distribution must advise the Judges of the existence and extent of all objections by the end of the comment period. The Judges will not consider any objections with respect to the partial distribution motion that come to their attention after the close of the comment period. Dated: March 27, 2019. Jesse M. Feder, Chief Copyright Royalty Judge.
