The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) reminds television broadcasters broadcasters, whose signals were carried as distant signals by at least one cable system in 2015, that they must file a claim with the Copyright Royalty Board no later than August 1, 2016.
If a station fails to file within this time frame, it cannot collect any royalties for 2015.
Broadcasters can file claims online through the Copyright Office’s website. Details on how to file a claim are provided in an NAB Counsel Memo, available here. For further assistance, contact NAB’s legal counsel: Ann Mace at (202) 624-2711 or Suzanne Head at (202) 429-5302.
