Copyright Office Publishes Technical Amendment on Fee for Designation of Agent

The Copyright Office is making a technical amendment in the regulations regarding fees for recordation of an interim or amended designation of agent to receive notification of claimed infringement under the Copyright Act. The Office is amending sections 201.38(e) and 201.38(f) to reference the established section 201.3(c) fee schedule for recordation of an interim designation of agent to receive notification of claimed infringement under section 512(c)(2).

Copyright Office Updates Specialty Station List

The Copyright Office is compiling a new specialty station list to identify commercial television broadcast stations that, according to their owners, qualify as specialty stations for purposes of the former distant signal carriage rules of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The list has been periodically updated to reflect an accurate listing of specialty stations. To that end, the Copyright Office is again requesting all interested owners of television broadcast stations that qualify as specialty stations, including those that previously filed affidavits, to submit sworn affidavits to the Copyright Office stating that the programming of their stations meets the requirements specified under the FCC regulations in effect on June 24, 1981. Affidavits should be received on or before April 9. (Read further information.)
