This document begins the Commission's third periodic review of the transition of the nation's broadcast television system from analog to digital television. It provides a progress report on the DTV transition and considers the procedures and rule changes necessary to ensure that broadcasters timely complete their transitions. Congress has mandated that after February 17, 2009, full-power television broadcast stations must transmit only digital signals, and may no longer transmit analog signals. This document considers how to ensure that broadcasters complete construction of their final, post-transition (digital) facilities by the statutory deadline.

Online Registration of Claims to Copyright
Document Number: E7-13194
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-07-06
Agency: Library of Congress, Agencies and Commissions, Copyright Office, Copyright Office, Library of Congress
The Copyright Office is undergoing an extensive business process reengineering (BPR) initiative of many of its internal work systems, including registration and recordation procedural systems, to enhance the delivery of its services to the public. The implementation of an online registration system is a key component of BPR, and it requires that the Office amend its regulations governing the procedures by which the public submits, and the Office processes, copyright registrations and recordations. These interim rules identify the principal changes and upgrades to the registration system and announce the amendments to the regulations to accommodate online registration. These changes will become effective with the commencement of the Beta test phase of the electronic, online registration system in July 2007. The Beta test phase will be limited to selected participants until system testing is complete, at which time the Office will open the electronic registration system to the public.

Coverage Under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act
Document Number: E7-13051
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-07-06
Agency: Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (``EEOC'' or ``Commission'') is publishing this final rule to amend its Age Discrimination in Employment Act (the ``Act'' or ``ADEA'') regulations to conform them to the Supreme Court's holding in General Dynamics Land System, Inc. v. Cline, 540 U.S. 581 (2004), that the ADEA only prohibits discrimination based on relatively older age, not discrimination based on age generally. Thus, the final rule deletes language in EEOC's ADEA regulations that prohibited discrimination against relatively younger individuals. The new rule explains that the ADEA only prohibits employment discrimination based on old age and, therefore, does not prohibit employers from favoring relatively older individuals.
