Television Broadcasters Reminded to File Cable Royalty Claims

NABThe 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.
