Copyright Office Publishes Final Rule on Filing Statements of Account and Amends Section Heading for Section 201.11 C.F.R.

The Copyright Office is amending its rules to require each cable operator, satellite carrier, and manufacturer and importer of digital audio recording technology and media to file with the Licensing Division of the Copyright Office both an original statement of account and a copy of the statement of account along with the appropriate royalty payment. Prior to the rule change, the licensee had only to file the original statement of account. This rule takes effect on July 1, 2005. In addition, the Office is revising the section heading for section 201.11 C.F.R. by removing the phrase "for private home viewing." (Read further information.)
