Extension of Comment Period: Resale Royalty Right

AGENCY: Copyright Office, Library of Congress.

ACTION: Extension of comment period.


SUMMARY: The Copyright Office is extending the period of public comment 
in response to its September 19, 2012 Notice of Inquiry requesting 
comments regarding issues relating to consideration of a federal resale 
royalty right.

DATES: Comments are due December 5, 2012.

ADDRESSES: All comments and reply comments shall be submitted 
electronically. A comment page containing a comment form is posted on 
the Office Web site at http://www.copyright.gov/docs/resaleroyalty. The 
Web site interface requires commenting parties to complete a form 
specifying name and organization, as applicable, and to upload comments 
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 
Document File (PDF) format that contains searchable, accessible text 
(not an image); Microsoft Word; 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: Jason Okai, Counsel, Office of Policy 
and International Affairs, by email at [email protected] or by telephone at 

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On September 19, 2012, the Copyright Office 
published a Notice of Inquiry inviting public comments on consideration 
of a federal resale royalty right. 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 December 5, 2012.

    Dated: October 10, 2012.
