(2) The equipment will be examined at least weekly by a qualified person according to 30 CFR 75.512–2 and examination results will be recorded weekly and may be expunged after one year. (3) The operator will comply with 30 CFR 75.323. (4) A qualified person under 30 CFR 75.151 will monitor for methane as is required in the mine.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Each year satellite carriers must submit 
royalty payments to the Register of Copyrights as required by the 
statutory license set forth in section 119 of the Copyright Act for the 
retransmission to satellite subscribers of over-the-air television 
broadcast signals. See 17 U.S.C. 119(b). 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. 
119(b)(5)(A), 801(b)(3)(A). If all claimants do not reach an 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. 119(b)(5)(B), 801(b)(3)(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. 119(b)(5)(C), 
801(b)(3)(C).
    On May 11, 2020, representatives of all the Allocation Phase 
(formerly ``Phase I'') claimant categories \1\ filed with the Judges a 
motion requesting a partial distribution amounting to 40% of the 2018 
satellite royalty funds on deposit pursuant to section 801(b)(3)(C) of 
the Copyright Act. That statutory section requires that, before ruling 
on the motion, the Judges publish a notice in the Federal Register 
seeking responses to the motion for partial distribution to ascertain 
whether any claimant entitled to receive the subject royalties has a 
reasonable objection to the requested distribution. 17 U.S.C. 
801(b)(3)(C).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The representatives are Program Suppliers, Joint Sports 
Claimants, Broadcaster Claimants Group, Music Claimants (represented 
by American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, Broadcast 
Music, Inc., and SESAC, Inc.), and Devotional Claimants, which 
represent traditionally recognized claimant categories. The Judges 
have not determined, and do not by this notice determine, the 
universe of claimant categories for 2018 satellite retransmission 
royalties.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Accordingly, this notice seeks comments from interested claimants 
on whether any reasonable objection exists that would preclude the 
distribution of 40% of the 2018 satellite royalty funds to the 
Allocation Phase Claimants. Parties objecting to the proposed partial 
distribution must advise the Judges of the existence and extent of all 
their 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.
