Webcaster Commenters Get More Time

Proceedings concern streaming recordkeeping, music licensing study

The public has more time to file comments regarding two music licensing proceedings.

Both the U.S. Copyright Office and the Copyright Royalty Board have granted the extra time, according to Wilkinson Barker Knauer communications attorney David Oxenford.

The Copyright Office is studying music licensing while the Copyright Royalty Board has an ongoing proceeding on streaming recordkeeping.

The Copyright Office has moved its due date to Sept. 12; its inquiry coincides with congressional hearings, we’ve reported.

The CRB proceeding seeks to determine whether Internet radio stations need to change the song information they report to SoundExchange, such as a unique code per song, according to the account. The new deadline is Sept. 5 (Docket No. 14-CRB-0005 (RM)).
