SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Back to Top

On October 27, 2009, representatives of the Phase I claimant categories (the “Phase I Claimants”) [1] filed with the Judges a motion requesting a partial distribution of 50% of the 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2007 satellite royalty funds pursuant to section 801(b)(3)(C) of the Copyright Act. That section requires that 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 such fees has a reasonable objection to the requested distribution before ruling on the motion. Consequently, by today's Notice, the Judges seek comments from interested claimants on whether any reasonable objection exists that would preclude the distribution of 50% of the 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007 satellite royalty funds to the Phase I claimants.

The Motion of the Phase I Claimants for Partial Distribution is posted on the Copyright Royalty Board Web site at http://www.loc.gov/crb.

Dated: January 22, 2010.

William J. Roberts,

Copyright Royalty Judge.
