Because a comment filed by settling parties included additional material (in particular a memorandum of understanding) that relates to statements in some of the comments the Copyright Royalty Judges received, the Judges are reopening the comment period for an additional 30 days. The proposed rule published for comment sets certain rates and terms applicable during the period beginning January 1, 2023, and ending December 31, 2027, for the section 115 statutory license for making and distributing phonorecords of nondramatic musical works and is based on regulations proposed pursuant to a partial settlement among the settling parties.
