Copyright Royalty Judges Corrections Act

On September 25, 2006, the "Copyright Royalty Judges Program Technical Corrections Act," (HR 1036) was sent President for signature. Among other provisions, the Act provides that Copyright Royalty Judges
  • are subject to the Administrative Procedure Act;
  • must consider certain Copyright Arbitration Royalty Panel determinations and interpretations among precedents; and
  • must allow certain petitioners to participate in a proceeding without a filing fee;
  • may issue an amendment to a written determination concerning technical and clerical errors and to modify terms under certain conditions.

The Act will be effective as if it were included in the Copyright Royalty and Distribution Reform Act of 2004, except that the provisions for partial distribution of royalty fees is effective upon enactment.
