The Copyright Office announced its final regulations on Section 111 statutory license royalty rates. These royalties pertain to cable systems' retransmissions to subscribers via over-the-air broadcast signals. The rates are based on a percentage that is determined by gross receipts of the individual cable system. The regulations are effective for the accounting period beginning July 1, 2005.
