additional comments regarding issues relating to remedies for small 
copyright claims.

DATES: Comments are due October 19, 2012.

ADDRESSES: All comments and reply comments shall be submitted

the Office Web site at http://www.copyright.gov/docs/smallclaims. The 
Web site interface requires commenting parties to complete a form

as an attachment via a browser button. To meet accessibility standards, 
commenting parties must upload comments in a single file not to exceed 
six megabytes (MB) in one of the following formats: The Adobe Portable

WordPerfect; Rich Text Format (RTF); or ASCII text file format (not a 
scanned document). The form and face of the comments must include both 
the name of the submitter and organization. The Office will post the 
comments publicly on the Office's Web site exactly as they are 
received, along with names and organizations. If electronic submission 
of comments is not feasible, please contact the Office at 202-707-8350 
for special instructions.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jacqueline Charlesworth, Senior 
Counsel, Office of the Register, by email at [email protected] or 
by telephone at 202-707-8350; or Catherine Rowland, Senior Counsel, 
Office of Policy and International Affairs, by email at 
[email protected] or by telephone at 202-707-8350.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On August 23, 2012, the Copyright Office 
published a Notice of Inquiry inviting additional public comments on 
remedies for small copyright claims. Due to the number and complexity 
of the issues raised in that Notice, it appears that some stakeholders 
may need additional time to respond. In order to facilitate full and 
adequate public comment, the Office hereby extends the time for filing 
additional comments to October 19, 2012.

    Dated: September 11, 2012.
