NASA Advisory Council; Science Committee; Meeting, 58177-58178 [2019-23717]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 210 / Wednesday, October 30, 2019 / Notices underlying musical works. Unmatched works routinely occur as a result of different spellings of artist names and song titles. . . . The Committee believes that this must end so that all artists are paid for their creations and that so-called ‘‘black box’’ revenue is not a drain on the success of the entire industry.12 In designating the MLC, the Copyright Office accordingly noted that it is the MLC’s ‘‘core project [to] encourag[e] musical work copyright owners with unclaimed accrued royalties to come forward and claim such monies’’ after identifying them based on the data ingested through uses of the license.13 In recognition of the significant duties involved with respect to the potential distribution of unclaimed, accrued royalties for which the creators of such works will not be paid,14 the MMA also directs the Copyright Office to undertake a study that recommends best practices for the MLC to identify and locate copyright owners with unclaimed royalties, encourage copyright owners to claim their royalties, and reduce the incidence of unclaimed royalties. The resulting Unclaimed Royalties Study recommending best practices for the collective must be submitted to the Committee on the Judiciary of the Senate and the Committee on the Judiciary of the House of Representatives by July 8, 2021. The Register is directed to solicit and review comments and relevant information from music industry participants and other interested parties, and consult with the Comptroller General of the United States. The MLC is required to carefully consider, and give substantial weight to, the recommendations that will be set forth in the Unclaimed Royalties Study.15 Separately, the MMA also directs the Copyright Office to engage in education and outreach activities to educate songwriters and other interested parties about the new law, including the processes by which a copyright owner may claim ownership in accrued royalties and the MLC may distribute unclaimed, accrued royalties.16 While the statute, legislative history, and indeed, prior Copyright Office policy studies are highly informative with respect to various aspects relevant to the policy study,17 the Office appreciates the keen interest of 12 H.R.

For example, the recent designation of the MLC resulted in over 600 comments, including many submitted by individual songwriters, expressing views with respect to the MLC’s forthcoming activities matching uses to musical works and ownership information, locating copyright owners with accrued royalties, and ultimately reducing the amount of unclaimed royalties.18 Because the section 115 license and the MLC’s statutory duties are a relatively complex area of copyright that affects many in the music licensing ecosystem, the Copyright Office is electing to initiate its study with an educational public event. The public process for this study will roughly track that of the Office’s recently-completed study on attribution and integrity rights.19 To launch the Unclaimed Royalties Study, the Office is holding a symposium on December 6, 2019. A transcript and video of the event will be made available on the Copyright Office website, and interested members of the public will have a subsequent opportunity to comment on statements or topics raised during the symposium, to aid the Office in its analysis of the issues. In 2020, the Office will separately issue a Notice of Inquiry soliciting written comments from the public, and also expects to announce public roundtables. These subsequent steps in the study process are intended to provide ample opportunities for the public to provide input on the Unclaimed Royalties Study. II. Subjects of Discussion The symposium will consist of three core panel discussions regarding: (1) Creating comprehensive databases (including discussions of past efforts); (2) matching musical works to sound recordings; and (3) education on unclaimed royalties across the industry. The symposium is also expected to include representatives from the MLC and the Digital Licensee Coordinator, as well as a breakout session to solicit artists’ perspectives on relevant issues. The Office will also provide participants and observers with an opportunity to offer additional comments for the record, following the panel discussion. The Office is currently finalizing its list of panelists. The finalized agenda 18 See 84 FR at 32283–84 (discussing ways in which the statute addresses issues with respect to smaller independent songwriters, including the Unclaimed Royalties Study). 19 U.S. Copyright Office, Authors, Attribution, and Integrity: Examining Moral Rights in the United States (2019), https://www.copyright.gov/policy/ moralrights/full-report.pdf.
