SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On December 26, 2018, the Copyright Royalty Judges (Judges) commenced a proceeding to determine the distribution of the digital audio recording technology (DART) royalties in the jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:00 Jun 11, 2019 Jkt 247001 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011 Sound Recordings Funds, which, for purposes of this proceeding, consist of the Featured Recording Artists Subfund and the Copyright Owners Subfund. 83 FR 66312, 66313.1 The Judges received Petitions to Participate (PTP) from David Powell, Eugene ‘‘Lambchops’’ Curry, Herman Kelly, and Alliance of Artists and Recording Companies (AARC). Notice of Participants, Commencement of Voluntary Negotiation Period, and Case Scheduling Order (Attachment A) (Feb. 27, 2019). On February 27, 2019, the Judges dismissed Mr. Powell and Mr. Curry from the proceeding. Order Granting AARC Motion to Reject David Powell’s Defective Filings and Dismissing David Powell and Order Granting AARC Motion to Reject Eugene Curry’s Defective Filing and Dismissing Eugene Curry.2 Therefore, the only two participants remaining in the proceeding are Mr. Kelly and AARC. According to Copyright Royalty Board records, while AARC filed a claim for DART royalties in 2007 under the Featured Recording Artists Subfund, Mr. Kelly filed no claim for DART royalties for 2007. As a result, AARC is the only remaining claimant with a valid claim for 2007 DART royalties in the Featured Recording Artists Subfund of the Sound Recordings Fund. Section 801(b)(3)(A) of the Copyright Act states that the Judges may authorize distribution of royalty fees deposited pursuant to Section 1005 of the Copyright Act if they find that the distribution is not subject to controversy. 17 U.S.C. 801(b)(3)(A). In the current proceeding, AARC is the only remaining party with a claim to 2007 DART royalties in the Featured Recording Artists Subfund of the Sound Recordings Fund. Therefore, 2007 DART royalties in the Featured Recording Artists Subfund are not in controversy. The Judges therefore order that the remaining royalties in the 2007 DART Featured Recording Artists Subfund of the Sound Recordings Fund be distributed to AARC.3 1 Pursuant to section 1006(b)(1) of the Copyright Act, small portions of each subfund have already been distributed to representatives for nonfeatured musicians and nonfeatured vocalists and are not part of this proceeding. 2 Mr. Curry’s motion for leave to file a late petition to participate is pending before the Judges. 3 The Judges previously ordered distribution of 98% of 2007 DART funds from the Sound Recordings Fund to AARC and the claimants that it represents. Distribution Order, Docket No. 2008– 3 CRB DD 2007 (Oct. 14, 2008) and Order Granting In Part AARC’s Supplemental Requests for Partial Distribution of 2007, 2008, and 2009 DART Sound Recordings Fund Royalties, Docket Nos. 2010–5 PO 00000 Frm 00132 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The Judges will forward this determination to the Register of Copyrights and the Librarian of Congress for review and approval.

Background

    Each year, Federal agencies create billions of records. To control 
this accumulation, agency records managers prepare schedules proposing 
retention periods for records and submit these schedules for NARA's 
approval. Once approved by NARA, records schedules provide mandatory 
instructions on what happens to records when no longer needed for 
current Government business. The records schedules authorize agencies 
to preserve records of continuing value in the National Archives or to 
destroy, after a specified period, records lacking continuing 
administrative, legal, research, or other value. Some schedules are 
comprehensive and cover all the records of an agency or one of its 
major subdivisions. Most schedules, however, cover records of only one 
office or program or a few series of records. Many of these update 
previously approved schedules, and some include records proposed as 
permanent.
    Agencies may not destroy Federal records without the approval of 
the Archivist of the United States. The Archivist grants this approval 
only after thorough consideration of the records' administrative use by 
the agency of origin, the rights of the Government and of private 
people directly affected by the Government's activities, and whether or 
not the records have historical or other value. Public review and 
comment on these records schedules is part of the Archivist's 
consideration process.
