Compulsory Satellite Licensing Legislative Update
On June 17, 2004, the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee forwarded legislation (S. 2013) to extend the compulsory license for satellite use of programming at 17 U.S.C. 119 which is currently set to expire at the end of this year. A similar bill (H.R. 4518) is pending before the House Judiciary Committee.
