LIBRARY OF CONGRESS
Copyright Office
Notification of Agreements Under the Webcaster Settlement Act of 2008
AGENCY:Copyright Office, Library of Congress. ACTION:Notice of agreement.
SUMMARY:The Copyright Office is publishing three agreements which set rates and terms for the reproduction and performance of sound recordings made by certain specified webcasters, under two statutory licenses. Webcasters who meet the eligibility requirements may choose to operate under the statutory licenses in accordance with the rates and terms set forth in the agreements published herein rather than the rates and terms of any determination by the Copyright Royalty Judges. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Stephen Ruwe, Attorney Advisor, or Tanya M. Sandros, Deputy General Counsel, Copyright GC/I&R, P.O. Box 70400, Washington, DC 20024. Telephone: (202) 707–8380. Telefax: (202) 707–8366. See the final paragraph of theSUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATIONfor information on where to direct questions regarding the rates and terms set forth in the agreement. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:On October 16, 2008, President Bush signed into law the Webcaster Settlement Act of 2008 (‘‘WSA’’), Public Law 110–435, 122 Stat. 4974, which amends Section 114 of the Copyright Act, title 17 of the United States Code, as it relates to webcasters. The WSA allows SoundExchange, the Receiving Agent designated by the Librarian of Congress in his June 20, 2002, order for collecting royalty payments made by eligible nonsubscription transmission services under the Section 112 and Section 114 statutory licenses, see 67 FR 45239 (July 8, 2002), to enter into agreements on behalf of all copyright owners and

performers to set rates, terms and conditions for webcasters operating under the Section 112 and Section 114 statutory licenses for a period of not more than 11 years beginning on January 1, 2005. The authority to enter into such settlement agreements expired on February 15, 2009. Unless otherwise agreed to by the parties to an agreement, the rates and terms set forth in such agreements apply only to the time periods specified in the agreement and have no precedential value in any proceeding concerned with the setting of rates and terms for the public performance or reproduction in ephemeral phonorecords or copies of sound recordings. To make this point clear, Congress included language expressly addressing the precedential value of such agreements. Specifically, Section 114(f)(5)(C), as added by the WSA, states that: ‘‘Neither subparagraph (A) nor any provisions of any agreement entered into pursuant to subparagraph (A), including any rate structure, fees, terms, conditions, or notice and recordkeeping requirements set forth therein, shall be admissible as evidence or otherwise taken into account in any administrative, judicial, or other government proceeding involving the setting or adjustment of the royalties payable for the public performance or reproduction in ephemeral recordings or copies of sound recordings, the determination of terms or conditions related thereto, or the establishment of notice and recordkeeping requirements by the Copyright Royalty Judges under paragraph (4) or Section 112(e)(4). It is the intent of Congress that any royalty rates, rate structure, definitions, terms, conditions, or notice and recordkeeping requirements, included in such agreements shall be considered as a compromise motivated by the unique business, economic and political circumstances of small webcasters, copyright owners, and performers rather than as matters that would have been negotiated in the marketplace between a willing buyer and a willing seller, or otherwise meet the objectives set forth in Section 801(b). This subparagraph shall not apply to the extent that the receiving agent and a webcaster that is party to an agreement entered into pursuant to subparagraph (A) expressly authorize the submission of the agreement in a proceeding under this subSection.’’ 17 U.S.C. 114(f)(5)(C) (2009). On February 13, 2009, SoundExchange and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (‘‘CPB’’) notified the Copyright Office that they had negotiated an agreement for the reproduction and performance of sound
