In the Federal Register of February 13, 2008, in FR Doc. E8-2675; on page 8315, in the second column, correct the “Needs and Uses” to read:
Needs and Uses: On February 1, 2008, the Commission released a Report and Order and Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, In the Matter of Leased Commercial Access, MB Docket No. 07-42, FCC 07-208. In this Report and Order, we modify the leased access rules. With respect to leased access, we modify the leased access rate formula; adopt customer service obligations that require minimal standards and equal treatment of leased access programmers with other programmers; eliminate the requirement for an independent accountant to review leased access rates; and require annual reporting of leased access statistics. We also adopt expedited time frames for resolution of complaints and improve the discovery process.
The commercial leased access requirements are set forth in Section 612 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended. The statute and corresponding leased access rules require a cable operator to set aside channel capacity for commercial use by unaffiliated video programmers. The Commission's rules implementing the statute require that cable operators with 36 or more channels calculate rates for leased access channels, maintain and provide on request information pertaining to leased access channels, and provide billing and collection services as required. The Commission may be required to resolve complaints about rates, terms and conditions of leased access. Changes to the rules increased the quantity of information maintained and provided, increase the information needed to calculate rates and require the filing of an annual report with the Commission on the status of leased access channels.
In addition, the Commission is consolidating information collection OMB Control Number 3060-0569 (Commercial leased access dispute resolution) into this collection OMB Control Number 3060-0568.Start Signature
