SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On October 14, 2008, the Copyright Office published a notice of proposed rulemaking to inform the public that the Copyright Office of the Library of Congress is considering adoption of new fees for registration of claims, special services and Licensing Division services, and that the Office intends to submit a schedule of proposed new statutory fees and fees for certain other services to Congress. (73 FR 60658 October 14, 2008)

The NPRM contained three charts which included a comparison of existing fees and the proposed new fees. Due to a printing problem, a substantial portion of the text was missing from the charts entitled “Special services” and “Licensing Division services,” and a correction document was issued by the Federal Register on October 23, 2008. (73 FR 63111) The Office is now extending the comment deadline to provide a 30 day period to consider all the fees, including those published for the first time in the correction.

The cost study which provides the basis for the proposed fee changes is posted on the Office’s website at: http://www.copyright.gov/​reports/​fees2008.pdf.
