     SEC. 3. COPYRIGHT ROYALTY JUDGE AND STAFF.

       (a) In General.--Chapter 8 is amended to read as follows:

          ``CHAPTER 8--PROCEEDINGS BY COPYRIGHT ROYALTY JUDGES

``Sec.
``801. Copyright Royalty Judges; appointment and functions.
``802. Copyright Royalty Judgeships; staff.
``803. Proceedings of Copyright Royalty Judges.
``804. Institution of proceedings.
``805. General rule for voluntarily negotiated agreements.

     ``Sec. 801. Copyright Royalty Judges; appointment and 
       functions

       ``(a) Appointment.--The Librarian of Congress shall appoint 
     3 full-time Copyright Royalty Judges, and shall appoint 1 of 
     the 3 as the Chief Copyright Royalty Judge. The Librarian 
     shall make appointments to such positions after consultation 
     with the Register of Copyrights.
       ``(b) Functions.--Subject to the provisions of this 
     chapter, the functions of the Copyright Royalty Judges shall 
     be as follows:
       ``(1) To make determinations and adjustments of reasonable 
     terms and rates of royalty payments as provided in sections 
     112(e), 114, 115, 116, 118, 119 and 1004. The rates 
     applicable under sections 114(f)(1)(B), 115, and 116 shall be 
     calculated to achieve the following objectives:
       ``(A) To maximize the availability of creative works to the 
     public.
       ``(B) To afford the copyright owner a fair return for his 
     or her creative work and the copyright user a fair income 
     under existing economic conditions.
       ``(C) To reflect the relative roles of the copyright owner 
     and the copyright user in the product made available to the 
     public with respect to relative creative contribution, 
     technological contribution, capital investment, cost, risk, 
     and contribution to the opening of new markets for creative 
     expression and media for their communication.
       ``(D) To minimize any disruptive impact on the structure of 
     the industries involved and on generally prevailing industry 
     practices.
       ``(2) To make determinations concerning the adjustment of 
     the copyright royalty rates under section 111 solely in 
     accordance with the following provisions:
       ``(A) The rates established by section 111(d)(1)(B) may be 
     adjusted to reflect--
       ``(i) national monetary inflation or deflation; or
       ``(ii) changes in the average rates charged cable 
     subscribers for the basic service of providing secondary 
     transmissions to maintain the real constant dollar level of 
     the royalty fee per subscriber which existed as of the date 
     of October 19, 1976,

     except that--
       ``(I) if the average rates charged cable system subscribers 
     for the basic service of providing secondary transmissions 
     are changed so that the average rates exceed national 
     monetary inflation, no change in the rates established by 
     section 111(d)(1)(B) shall be permitted; and
       ``(II) no increase in the royalty fee shall be permitted 
     based on any reduction in the average number of distant 
     signal equivalents per subscriber.

     The Copyright Royalty Judges may consider all factors 
     relating to the maintenance of such level of payments, 
     including, as an extenuating factor, whether the industry has 
     been restrained by subscriber rate regulating authorities 
     from increasing the rates for the basic service of providing 
     secondary transmissions.
       ``(B) In the event that the rules and regulations of the 
     Federal Communications Commission are amended at any time 
     after April 15, 1976, to permit the carriage by cable systems 
     of additional television broadcast signals beyond the local 
     service area of the primary transmitters of such signals, the 
     royalty rates established by section 111(d)(1)(B) may be 
     adjusted to ensure that the rates for the additional distant 
     signal equivalents resulting from such carriage are 
     reasonable in the light of the changes effected by the 
     amendment to such rules and regulations. In determining the 
     reasonableness of rates proposed following an amendment of 
     Federal Communications Commission rules and regulations, the 
     Copyright Royalty Judges shall consider, among other factors, 
     the economic impact on copyright owners and users; except 
     that no adjustment in royalty rates shall be made under this 
     subparagraph with

[[Page S10588]]

     respect to any distant signal equivalent or fraction thereof 
     represented by--
       ``(i) carriage of any signal permitted under the rules and 
     regulations of the Federal Communications Commission in 
     effect on April 15, 1976, or the carriage of a signal of the 
     same type (that is, independent, network, or noncommercial 
     educational) substituted for such permitted signal; or
       ``(ii) a television broadcast signal first carried after 
     April 15, 1976, pursuant to an individual waiver of the rules 
     and regulations of the Federal Communications Commission, as 
     such rules and regulations were in effect on April 15, 1976.
       ``(C) In the event of any change in the rules and 
     regulations of the Federal Communications Commission with 
     respect to syndicated and sports program exclusivity after 
     April 15, 1976, the rates established by section 111(d)(1)(B) 
     may be adjusted to assure that such rates are reasonable in 
     light of the changes to such rules and regulations, but any 
     such adjustment shall apply only to the affected television 
     broadcast signals carried on those systems affected by the 
     change.
       ``(D) The gross receipts limitations established by section 
     111(d)(1) (C) and (D) shall be adjusted to reflect national 
     monetary inflation or deflation or changes in the average 
     rates charged cable system subscribers for the basic service 
     of providing secondary transmissions to maintain the real 
     constant dollar value of the exemption provided by such 
     section, and the royalty rate specified therein shall not be 
     subject to adjustment.
       ``(3)(A) To authorize the distribution, under sections 111, 
     119, and 1007, of those royalty fees collected under sections 
     111, 119, and 1005, as the case may be, to the extent that 
     the Copyright Royalty Judges have found that the distribution 
     of such fees is not subject to controversy.
       ``(B) In cases where the Copyright Royalty Judges determine 
     that controversy exists, the Copyright Royalty Judges shall 
     determine the distribution of such fees, including partial 
     distributions, in accordance with section 111, 119, or 1007, 
     as the case may be.
       ``(C) The Copyright Royalty Judges may make a partial 
     distribution of such fees during the pendency of the 
     proceeding under subparagraph (B) if all participants under 
     section 803(b)(2) in the proceeding that are entitled to 
     receive those fees that are to be partially distributed--
       ``(i) agree to such partial distribution;
       ``(ii) sign an agreement obligating them to return any 
     excess amounts to the extent necessary to comply with the 
     final determination on the distribution of the fees made 
     under subparagraph (B);
       ``(iii) file the agreement with the Copyright Royalty 
     Judges; and
       ``(iv) agree that such funds are available for 
     distribution.
       ``(D) The Copyright Royalty Judges and any other officer or 
     employee acting in good faith in distributing funds under 
     subparagraph (C) shall not be held liable for the payment of 
     any excess fees under subparagraph (C). The Copyright Royalty 
     Judges shall, at the time the final determination is made, 
     calculate any such excess amounts.
       ``(4) To accept or reject royalty claims filed under 
     sections 111, 119, and 1007, on the basis of timeliness or 
     the failure to establish the basis for a claim.
       ``(5) To accept or reject rate adjustment petitions as 
     provided in section 804 and petitions to participate as 
     provided in section 803(b) (1) and (2).
       ``(6) To determine the status of a digital audio recording 
     device or a digital audio interface device under sections 
     1002 and 1003, as provided in section 1010.
       ``(7)(A) To adopt as a basis for statutory terms and rates 
     or as a basis for the distribution of statutory royalty 
     payments, an agreement concerning such matters reached among 
     some or all of the participants in a proceeding at any time 
     during the proceeding, except that--
       ``(i) the Copyright Royalty Judges shall provide to those 
     that would be bound by the terms, rates, or other 
     determination set by any agreement in a proceeding to 
     determine royalty rates an opportunity to comment on the 
     agreement and shall provide to the other participants in the 
     proceeding under section 803(b)(2) that would be bound by the 
     terms, rates, or other determination set by the agreement an 
     opportunity to comment on the agreement and object to its 
     adoption as a basis for statutory terms and rates; and
       ``(ii) the Copyright Royalty Judges may decline to adopt 
     the agreement as a basis for statutory terms and rates for 
     participants that are not parties to the agreement, if any 
     other participant described in subparagraph (A) objects to 
     the agreement and the Copyright Royalty Judges conclude, 
     based on the record before them if one exists, that the 
     agreement does not provide a reasonable basis for setting 
     statutory terms or rates.
       ``(B) License agreements voluntarily negotiated pursuant to 
     section 112(e)(5), 114(f)(3), 115(c)(3)(E)(i), 116(c), or 
     118(b) (2) or (3) that do not result in statutory terms and 
     rates shall not be subject to clauses (i) and (ii) of 
     subparagraph (A).
       ``(C) Interested parties may negotiate and agree to, and 
     the Copyright Royalty Judges may adopt, an agreement that 
     specifies as terms notice and recordkeeping requirements that 
     apply in lieu of those that would otherwise apply under 
     regulations.
       ``(8) To perform other duties, as assigned by the Register 
     of Copyrights within the Library of Congress, except as 
     provided in section 802(g) at times when Copyright Royalty 
     Judges are not engaged in performing the other duties set 
     forth in this section.
       ``(c) Rulings.--As provided in section 802(f)(1), the 
     Copyright Royalty Judges may make any necessary procedural or 
     evidentiary rulings in any proceeding under this chapter and 
     may, before commencing a proceeding under this chapter, make 
     any such rulings that would apply to the proceedings 
     conducted by the Copyright Royalty Judges.
       ``(d) Administrative Support.--The Librarian of Congress 
     shall provide the Copyright Royalty Judges with the necessary 
     administrative services related to proceedings under this 
     chapter.
       ``(e) Location in Library of Congress.--The offices of the 
     Copyright Royalty Judges and staff shall be in the Library of

[[Page S10589]]

       ``(ii) A Copyright Royalty Judge or Judges, or, by motion 
     to the Copyright Royalty Judge or Judges, any participant in 
     a proceeding may request an interpretation by the Register of 
     Copyrights concerning any material question of substantive 
     law (not including questions of procedure before the 
     Copyright Royalty Judges, the ultimate adjustments and 
     determinations of copyright royalty rates and terms, the 
     ultimate distribution of copyright royalties, or the 
     acceptance or rejection of royalty claims, rate adjustment 
     petitions, or petitions to participate) concerning an 
     interpretation or construction of those provisions of this 
     title that are the subject of the proceeding. Any such 
     request for a written interpretation by the Register of 
     Copyrights shall be on the record. Reasonable provision shall 
     be made for comment by the participants in the proceeding on 
     the material question of substantive law in such a way as to 
     minimize duplication and delay. Except as provided in 
     subparagraph (B), the Register of Copyrights shall deliver to 
     the Copyright Royalty Judges a response within 14 days of 
     receipt by the Register of Copyrights of all of the briefs or 
     comments of the participants. Such decision shall be in 
     writing and shall be included by the Copyright Royalty Judges 
     in the record that accompanies their final determination. If 
     such a decision is timely delivered to the Copyright Royalty 
     Judges, the Copyright Royalty Judges shall apply the legal 
     interpretation embodied in the response of the Register of 
     Copyrights in resolving material questions of substantive 
     law.
       ``(B) Novel questions.--(i) In any case in which a novel 
     material question of substantive law concerning an 
     interpretation of those provisions of this title that are the 
     subject of the proceeding is presented, the Copyright Royalty 
     Judges shall request a decision of the Register of 
     Copyrights, in writing, to resolve such novel question. 
     Reasonable provision shall be made for comment on such 
     request by the participants in the proceeding, in such a way 
     as to minimize duplication and delay. The Register shall 
     transmit his or her decision to the Copyright Royalty Judges 
     within 30 days of receipt by the Register of Copyrights of 
     all of the briefs or comments of the participants. Such 
     decision shall be in writing and included by the Copyright 
     Royalty Judges in the record that accompanies their final 
     determination. If such a decision is timely delivered, the 
     Copyright Royalty Judges shall apply the legal determinations 
     embodied in the decision of the Register of Copyrights in 
     resolving material questions of substantive law.
       ``(ii) In clause (i), a `novel question of law' is a 
     question of law that has not been determined in prior 
     decisions, determinations, and rulings described in section 
     803(a).
       ``(C) Consultation.--Notwithstanding the provisions of 
     subparagraph (A), the Copyright Royalty Judges shall consult 
     with the Register of Copyrights with respect to any 
     determination or ruling that would require that any act be 
     performed by the Copyright Office, and any such determination 
     or ruling shall not be binding upon the Register of 
     Copyrights.
       ``(D) Review of legal conclusions by the register of 
     copyrights.--The Register of Copyrights may review for legal 
     error the resolution by the Copyright Royalty Judges of a 
     material question of substantive law under this title that 
     underlies or is contained in a final determination of the 
     Copyright Royalty Judges. If the Register of Copyrights 
     concludes, after taking into consideration the views of the 
     participants in the proceeding, that any resolution reached 
     by the Copyright Royalty Judges was in material error, the 
     Register of Copyrights shall issue a written decision 
     correcting such legal error, which shall be made part of the 
     record of the proceeding. Additionally, the Register of 
     Copyrights shall cause to be published in the Federal 
     Register such written decision together with a specific 
     identification of the legal conclusion of the Copyright 
     Royalty Judges that is determined to be erroneous. As to 
     conclusions of substantive law involving an interpretation of 
     the statutory provisions of this title, the decision of the 
     Register of Copyrights shall be binding as precedent upon the 
     Copyright Royalty Judges in subsequent proceedings under this 
     chapter. When a decision has been rendered pursuant to 
     section 802(f)(1)(D), the Register of Copyrights may, on the 
     basis of and in accordance with such decision, intervene as 
     of right in any appeal of a final determination of the 
     Copyright Royalty Judges pursuant to section 803(d) in the 
     United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia 
     Circuit. If, prior to intervening in such an appeal, the 
     Register of Copyrights gives notification and undertakes to 
     consult with the Attorney General with respect to such 
     intervention, and the Attorney General fails within 
     reasonable period after receipt of such notification to 
     intervene in such appeal, the Register of Copyrights may 
     intervene in such appeal in his or her own name by any 
     attorney designated by the Register of Copyrights for such 
     purpose. Intervention by the Register of Copyrights in his or 
     her own name shall not preclude the Attorney General from 
     intervening on behalf of the United States in such an appeal 
     as may be otherwise provided or required by law.
       ``(E) Effect on judicial review.--Nothing in this section 
     shall be interpreted to alter the standard applied by a court 
     in reviewing legal determinations involving an interpretation 
     or construction of the provisions of this title or to affect 
     the extent to which any construction or interpretation of the 
     provisions of this title shall be accorded deference by a 
     reviewing court.
       ``(2) Performance appraisals.--
       ``(A) In general.--Notwithstanding any other provision of 
     law or any regulation of the Library of Congress, and subject 
     to subparagraph (B), the Copyright Royalty Judges shall not 
     receive performance appraisals.
       ``(B) Relating to sanction or removal.--To the extent that 
     the Librarian of Congress adopts regulations under subsection 
     (h) relating to the sanction or removal of a Copyright 
     Royalty Judge and such regulations require documentation to 
     establish the cause of such sanction or removal, the 
     Copyright Royalty Judge may receive an appraisal related 
     specifically to the cause of the sanction or removal.
       ``(g) Inconsistent Duties Barred.--No Copyright Royalty 
     Judge may undertake duties that conflict with his or her 
     duties and responsibilities as a Copyright Royalty Judge.
       ``(h) Standards of Conduct.--The Librarian of Congress 
     shall adopt regulations regarding the standards of conduct, 
     including financial conflict of interest and restrictions 
     against ex parte communications, which shall govern the 
     Copyright Royalty Judges and the proceedings under this 
     chapter.
       ``(i) Removal or Sanction.--The Librarian of Congress may 
     sanction or remove a Copyright Royalty Judge for violation of 
     the standards of conduct adopted under subsection (h), 
     misconduct, neglect of duty, or any disqualifying physical or 
     mental disability. Any such sanction or removal may be made 
     only after notice and opportunity for a hearing, but the 
     Librarian of Congress may suspend the Copyright Royalty Judge 
     during the pendency of such hearing. The Librarian shall 
     appoint an interim Copyright Royalty Judge during the period 
     of any such suspension.

     ``Sec. 803. Proceedings of Copyright Royalty Judges

       ``(a) Proceedings.--
       ``(1) In general.--The Copyright Royalty Judges shall act 
     in accordance with regulations issued by the Copyright 
     Royalty Judges and the Librarian of Congress, and on the 
     basis of a written record, prior determinations and 
     interpretations of the Copyright Royalty Tribunal, Librarian 
     of Congress, copyright arbitration royalty panels, the 
     Register of Copyrights, and the Copyright Royalty Judges (to 
     the extent those determinations are not inconsistent with a 
     decision of the Register of Copyrights that was timely 
     delivered to the Copyright Royalty Judges pursuant to section 
     802(f)(1) (A) or (B), or with a decision of the Register of 
     Copyrights pursuant to section 802(f)(1)(D)), under this 
     chapter, and decisions of the court of appeals under this 
     chapter before, on, or after the effective date of the

     proceedings under this chapter en banc. The Chief Copyright 
     Royalty Judge may designate a Copyright Royalty Judge to 
     preside individually over such collateral and administrative 
     proceedings, and over such proceedings under paragraphs (1) 
     through (5) of subsection (b), as the Chief Judge considers 
     appropriate.
       ``(3) Determinations.--Final determinations of the 
     Copyright Royalty Judges in proceedings under this chapter 
     shall be made by majority vote. A Copyright Royalty Judge 
     dissenting from the majority on any determination under this 
     chapter may issue his or her dissenting opinion, which shall 
     be included with the determination.
       ``(b) Procedures.--
       ``(1) Initiation.--
       ``(A) Call for petitions to participate.--(i) Promptly upon 
     a determination made under section 804(a), or no later than 
     January 5 of a year specified in section 804(b) (2) or (3), 
     or as provided under section 804(b)(8), or by no later than 
     January 5 of a year specified in section 804 for the 
     commencement of a proceeding if a petition has not been filed 
     by that date, the Copyright Royalty Judges shall cause to be 
     published in the Federal Register notice of commencement of 
     proceedings under this chapter calling for the filing of 
     petitions to participate in a proceeding under this chapter 
     for the purpose of making the relevant determination under 
     section 111, 112, 114, 115, 116, 118, 119, 1004, or 1007, as 
     the case may be.
       ``(ii) Petitions to participate shall be filed by no later 
     than 30 days after publication of notice of commencement of a 
     proceeding, under clause (i), except that the Copyright 
     Royalty Judges may, for substantial good cause shown and if 
     there is no prejudice to the participants that have already 
     filed petitions, accept late petitions to participate at any 
     time up to the date that is 90 days before the date on which 
     participants in the proceeding are to file their written 
     direct statements. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, 
     petitioners whose petitions are filed more than 30 days after 
     publication of notice of commencement of a proceeding are not 
     eligible to object to a settlement reached during the 
     voluntary negotiation period under section 803(b)(3), and any 
     objection filed by such a petitioner shall not be taken into 
     account by the Copyright Royalty Judges.

     participate in a proceeding shall describe the petitioner's 
     interest in the subject

     matter of the proceeding. Parties with similar interests may 
     file a single petition to participate.
       ``(2) Participation in general.--Subject to paragraph (4), 
     a person may participate in a proceeding under this chapter, 
     including through the submission of briefs or other 
     information, only if--
       ``(A) that person has filed a petition to participate in 
     accordance with paragraph (1) (either individually or as a 
     group under paragraph (1)(B)), together with a filing fee of 
     $150;
       ``(B) the Copyright Royalty Judges have not determined that 
     the petition to participate is facially invalid; and
       ``(C) the Copyright Royalty Judges have not determined, sua 
     sponte or on the motion of another participant in the 
     proceeding, that the person lacks a significant interest in 
     the proceeding.
       ``(3) Voluntary negotiation period.--
       ``(A) In general.--Promptly after the date for filing of 
     petitions to participate in a proceeding, the Copyright 
     Royalty Judges shall make available to all participants in 
     the proceeding a list of such participants and shall initiate 
     a voluntary negotiation period among the participants.
       ``(B) Length of proceedings.--The voluntary negotiation 
     period initiated under subparagraph (A) shall be 3 months.
       ``(C) Determination of subsequent proceedings.--At the 
     close of the voluntary negotiation proceedings, the Copyright 
     Royalty Judges shall, if further proceedings under this 
     chapter are necessary, determine whether and to what extent 
     paragraphs (4) and (5) will apply to the parties.

       ``(A) In general.--If, in a proceeding under this chapter 
     to determine the distribution of royalties, a participant in 
     the proceeding asserts a claim in the amount of $10,000 or 
     less, the Copyright Royalty Judges shall decide the 
     controversy on the basis of the filing of the written direct 
     statement by the participant, the response by any opposing 
     participant, and 1 additional response by each such party. 
     The participant asserting the claim shall not be required to 
     pay the filing fee under paragraph (2).
       ``(B) Bad faith inflation of claim.--If the Copyright 
     Royalty Judges determine that a participant asserts in bad 
     faith an amount in controversy in excess of $10,000 for the 
     purpose of avoiding a determination under the procedure set 
     forth in subparagraph (A), the Copyright Royalty Judges shall 
     impose a fine on that participant in an amount not to exceed 
     the difference between the actual amount distributed and the 
     amount asserted by the participant.
       ``(5) Paper proceedings.--The Copyright Royalty Judges in 
     proceedings under this chapter may decide, sua sponte or upon 
     motion of a participant, to determine issues on the basis of 
     the filing of the written direct statement by the 
     participant, the response by any opposing participant, and 
     one additional response by each such participant. Prior to 
     making such decision to proceed on such a paper record only, 
     the Copyright Royalty Judges shall offer to all parties to 
     the proceeding the opportunity to comment on the decision. 
     The procedure under this paragraph--
       ``(A) shall be applied in cases in which there is no 
     genuine issue of material fact, there is no need for 
     evidentiary hearings, and all participants in the proceeding 
     agree in writing to the procedure; and

     Copyright Royalty Judges consider appropriate.

       ``(A) In general.--The Copyright Royalty Judges may issue 
     regulations to carry out their functions under this title. 
     All regulations issued by the Copyright Royalty Judges are 
     subject to the approval of the Librarian of Congress. Not 
     later than 120 days after Copyright Royalty Judges or interim 
     Copyright Royalty Judges, as the case may be, are first 
     appointed after the enactment of the Copyright Royalty and 
     Distribution Reform Act of 2004, such judges shall issue 
     regulations to govern proceedings under this chapter.
       ``(B) Interim regulations.--Until regulations are adopted 
     under subparagraph (A), the Copyright Royalty Judges shall 
     apply the regulations in effect under this chapter on the day 
     before the effective date of the Copyright Royalty and 
     Distribution Reform Act of 2004, to the extent such 
     regulations are not inconsistent with this chapter, except 
     that functions carried out under such regulations by the 
     Librarian of Congress, the Register of Copyrights, or 
     copyright arbitration royalty panels that, as of such date of 
     enactment, are to be carried out by the Copyright Royalty 
     Judges under this chapter, shall be carried out by the 
     Copyright Royalty Judges under such regulations.
       ``(C) Requirements.--Regulations issued under subparagraph 
     (A) shall include the following:
       ``(i) The written direct statements of all participants in 
     a proceeding under paragraph (2) shall be filed by a date 
     specified by the Copyright Royalty Judges, which may be not 
     earlier than 4 months, and not later than 5 months, after the 
     end of the voluntary negotiation period under paragraph (3). 
     Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, the Copyright Royalty 
     Judges may allow a participant in a proceeding to file an 
     amended written direct statement based on new information 
     received during the discovery process, within 15 days after 
     the end of the discovery period specified in clause (iii).
       ``(ii)(I) Following the submission to the Copyright Royalty 
     Judges of written direct statements by the participants in a 
     proceeding under paragraph (2), the judges shall meet with 
     the participants for the purpose of setting a schedule for 
     conducting and completing discovery. Such schedule shall be 
     determined by the Copyright Royalty Judges.
       ``(II) In this chapter, the term `written direct 
     statements' means witness statements, testimony, and exhibits 
     to be presented in the proceedings, and such other 
     information that is necessary to establish terms and rates, 
     or the distribution of royalty payments, as the case may be, 
     as set forth in regulations issued by the Copyright Royalty 
     Judges.
       ``(iii) Hearsay may be admitted in proceedings under this 
     chapter to the extent deemed appropriate by the Copyright 
     Royalty Judges.

     a period of 60 days, except for discovery ordered by the 
     Copyright Royalty Judges in connection with the resolution of 
     motions, orders and disputes pending at the end of such 
     period.

     under this chapter to determine royalty rates may request of 
     an opposing participant nonprivileged documents directly 
     related to the written direct statement or written rebuttal 
     statement of that participant. Any objection to such a 
     request shall be resolved by a motion or request to compel 
     production made to the Copyright Royalty Judges according to 
     regulations adopted by the Copyright Royalty Judges. Each 
     motion or request to compel discovery shall be determined by 
     the Copyright Royalty Judges, or by a Copyright Royalty Judge 
     when permitted under subsection (a)(2). Upon such motion, the 
     Copyright Royalty Judges may order discovery pursuant to 
     regulations established under this paragraph.
       ``(vi)(I) Any participant under paragraph (2) in a 
     proceeding under this chapter to determine royalty rates may, 
     by means of written motion or on the record, request of an 
     opposing participant or witness other relevant information 
     and materials if absent the discovery sought the Copyright 
     Royalty Judges' resolution of the proceeding would be 
     substantially impaired. In determining whether discovery will 
     be granted under this clause, the Copyright Royalty Judges 
     may consider--

       ``(aa) whether the burden or expense of producing the 
     requested information or materials outweighs the likely 
     benefit, taking into account the needs and resources of the 
     participants, the importance of the issues at stake, and the 
     probative value of the requested information or materials in 
     resolving such issues;
       ``(bb) whether the requested information or materials would 
     be unreasonably cumulative or duplicative, or are obtainable 
     from another source that is more convenient, less burdensome, 
     or less expensive; and
       ``(cc) whether the participant seeking discovery has had 
     ample opportunity by discovery in the proceeding or by other 
     means to obtain the information sought.

       ``(II) This clause shall not apply to any proceeding 
     scheduled to commence after December 31, 2010.
       ``(vii) In a proceeding under this chapter to determine 
     royalty rates, the participants entitled to receive royalties 
     shall collectively be permitted to take no more than 10 
     depositions and secure responses to no more than 25 
     interrogatories and the participants obligated to pay 
     royalties shall collectively be permitted to take no more 
     than 10 depositions and secure responses to no more than 25 
     interrogatories. The Copyright Royalty Judges shall resolve 
     any disputes among similarly aligned participants to allocate 
     the number of depositions or interrogatories permitted under 
     this clause.
       ``(viii) The rules and practices in effect on the day 
     before the effective date of the Copyright Royalty and 
     Distribution Reform Act of 2004, relating to discovery in 
     proceedings under this chapter to determine the distribution 
     of royalty fees, shall continue to apply to such proceedings 
     on and after such effective date.
       ``(ix) In proceedings to determine royalty rates, the 
     Copyright Royalty Judges may issue a subpoena commanding a 
     participant or witness to appear and give testimony or to 
     produce and permit inspection of documents or tangible things 
     if the Copyright Royalty Judges' resolution of the proceeding 
     would be substantially impaired by the absence of such 
     testimony or production of documents or tangible things. Such 
     subpoena shall specify with reasonable particularity the 
     materials to be produced or the scope and nature of the 
     required testimony. Nothing in this subparagraph shall 
     preclude the Copyright Royalty Judges from requesting the 
     production by a nonparticipant of information or materials 
     relevant to the resolution by the Copyright Royalty Judges of 
     a material issue of fact.
       ``(x) The Copyright Royalty Judges shall order a settlement 
     conference among the participants in the proceeding to 
     facilitate the presentation of offers of settlement among the 
     participants. The settlement conference shall be held during 
     a 21-day period following the end of the discovery period and 
     shall take place outside the presence of the Copyright 
     Royalty Judges.
       ``(xi) No evidence, including exhibits, may be submitted in 
     the written direct statement

     sponsoring witness, except where the Copyright Royalty Judges 
     have taken official notice, or in the case of incorporation 
     by reference of past records, or for good cause shown.
       ``(c) Determination of Copyright Royalty Judges.--
       ``(1) Timing.--The Copyright Royalty Judges shall issue 
     their determination in a proceeding not later than 11 months 
     after the conclusion of the 21-day settlement conference 
     period under subsection (b)(3)(C)(x), but, in the case of a 
     proceeding to determine successors to rates or terms that 
     expire on a specified date, in no event later than 15 days 
     before the expiration of the then current statutory rates and 
     terms.
       ``(2) Rehearings.--
       ``(A) In general.--The Copyright Royalty Judges may, in 
     exceptional cases, upon motion of a participant under 
     subsection (b)(2), order a rehearing, after the determination 
     in a proceeding is issued under paragraph (1), on such 
     matters as the Copyright Royalty Judges determine to be 
     appropriate.
       ``(B) Timing for filing motion.--Any motion for a rehearing 
     under subparagraph (A) may only be filed within 15 days after 
     the date on which the Copyright Royalty Judges deliver their 
     initial determination concerning rates and terms to the 
     participants in the proceeding.
       ``(C) Participation by opposing party not required.--In any 
     case in which a rehearing is ordered, any opposing party 
     shall not be required to participate in the rehearing, except 
     as provided under subsection (d)(1).
       ``(D) No negative inference.--No negative inference shall 
     be drawn from lack of participation in a rehearing.
       ``(E) Continuity of rates and terms.--(i) If the decision 
     of the Copyright Royalty Judges on any motion for a rehearing 
     is not rendered before the expiration of the statutory rates 
     and terms that were previously in effect, in the case of a 
     proceeding to determine successors to rates and terms that 
     expire on a specified date, then--
       ``(I) the initial determination of the Copyright Royalty 
     Judges that is the subject of the rehearing motion shall be 
     effective as of the day following the date on which the rates 
     and terms that were previously in effect expire; and
       ``(II) in the case of a proceeding under section 
     114(f)(1)(C) or 114(f)(2)(C), royalty rates and terms shall, 
     for purposes of section 114(f)(4)(B), be deemed to have been 
     set at those rates and terms contained in the initial 
     determination of the Copyright Royalty Judges that is the 
     subject of the rehearing motion, as of the date of that 
     determination.
       ``(ii) The pendency of a motion for a rehearing under this 
     paragraph shall not relieve persons obligated to make royalty 
     payments who would be affected by the determination on that 
     motion from providing the statements of account and any 
     reports of use, to the extent required, and paying the 
     royalties required under the relevant determination or 
     regulations.
       ``(iii) Notwithstanding clause (ii), whenever royalties 
     described in clause (ii) are paid to a person other than the 
     Copyright Office, the entity designated by the Copyright 
     Royalty Judges to which such royalties are paid by the 
     copyright user (and any successor thereto) shall, within 60 
     days after the motion for rehearing is resolved or, if the 
     motion is granted, within 60 days after the rehearing is 
     concluded, return any excess amounts previously paid to the 
     extent necessary to comply with the final determination of 
     royalty rates by the Copyright Royalty Judges. Any 
     underpayment of royalties resulting from a rehearing shall be 
     paid within the same period.
       ``(3) Contents of determination.--A determination of the 
     Copyright Royalty Judges shall be supported by the written 
     record and shall set forth the findings of fact relied on by 
     the Copyright Royalty Judges. Among other terms adopted in a 
     determination, the Copyright Royalty Judges may specify 
     notice and recordkeeping requirements of users of the 
     copyrights at issue that apply in lieu of those that would 
     otherwise apply under regulations.
       ``(4) Continuing jurisdiction.--The Copyright Royalty 
     Judges may, with the approval of the Register of Copyrights, 
     issue an amendment to a written determination to correct any 
     technical or clerical errors in the determination or to 
     modify the terms, but not the rates, of royalty payments in 
     response to unforeseen circumstances that would frustrate the 
     proper implementation of such determination. Such amendment 
     shall be set forth in a written addendum to the determination 
     that shall be distributed to the participants of the 
     proceeding and shall be published in the Federal Register.
       ``(5) Protective order.--The Copyright Royalty Judges may 
     issue such orders as may be appropriate to protect 
     confidential information, including orders excluding 
     confidential information from the record of the determination 
     that is published or made available to the public, except 
     that any terms or rates of royalty payments or distributions 
     may not be excluded.
       ``(6) Publication of determination.--Following review of 
     the determination by the Register of Copyrights under section 
     802(f)(1)(D), the Librarian of Congress shall cause the 
     determination, and any corrections thereto, to be published 
     in the Federal Register. The Librarian of Congress shall also 
     publicize the determination and corrections in such other 
     manner as the Librarian considers appropriate, including, but 
     not limited to, publication on the Internet. The Librarian of 
     Congress shall also make the determination, corrections, and 
     the accompanying record available for public inspection and 
     copying.
       ``(7) Late payment.--A determination of Copyright Royalty 
     Judges may include terms with respect to late payment, but in 
     no way shall such terms prevent the copyright holder from 
     asserting other rights or remedies provided under this title.
       ``(d) Judicial Review.--
       ``(1) Appeal.--Any determination of the Copyright Royalty 
     Judges under subsection (c) may, within 30 days after the 
     publication of the determination in the Federal Register, be 
     appealed, to the United States Court of Appeals for the 
     District of Columbia Circuit, by any aggrieved participant in 
     the proceeding under subsection (b)(2) who fully participated 
     in the proceeding and who would be bound by the 
     determination. Any participant that did not participate in a 
     rehearing may not raise any issue that was the subject of 
     that rehearing at any stage of judicial review of the hearing 
     determination. If no appeal is brought within that 30-day 
     period, the determination of the Copyright Royalty Judges 
     shall be final, and the royalty fee or determination with 
     respect to the distribution of fees, as the case may be, 
     shall take effect as set forth in paragraph (2).
       ``(2) Effect of rates.--
       ``(A) Expiration on specified date.--When this title 
     provides that the royalty rates and terms that were 
     previously in effect are to expire on a specified date, any 
     adjustment or determination by the Copyright Royalty Judges 
     of successor rates and terms for an ensuing statutory license 
     period shall be effective as of the day following the date of 
     expiration of the rates and terms that were previously in 
     effect, even if the determination of the Copyright Royalty 
     Judges is rendered on a later date. A transmission service 
     shall be obligated to continue making payments under the 
     rates and terms previously in effect until such time as rates 
     and terms for the successor period are established. Whenever 
     royalties pursuant to this section are paid to a person other 
     than the Copyright Office, the entity designated by the 
     Copyright Royalty Judges to which such royalties are paid by 
     the copyright user (and any successor thereto) shall, within 
     60 days after the final determination of the Copyright 
     Royalty Judges establishing rates and terms for a successor 
     period or the exhaustion of all rehearings or appeals of such 
     determination, if any, return any excess amounts previously 
     paid to the extent necessary to comply with the final 
     determination of royalty rates. Any underpayment of royalties 
     by a copyright user shall be paid to the entity designated by 
     the Copyright Royalty Judges within the same period.
       ``(B) Other cases.--In cases where rates and terms have 
     not, prior to the inception of an activity, been established 
     for that particular activity under the relevant license, such 
     rates and terms shall be retroactive to the inception of 
     activity under the relevant license covered by such rates and 
     terms. In other cases where rates and terms do not expire on 
     a specified date, successor rates and terms shall take effect 
     on the first day of the second month that begins after the 
     publication of the determination of the Copyright Royalty 
     Judges in the Federal Register, except as otherwise provided 
     in this title, or by the Copyright Royalty Judges, or as 
     agreed by the participants in a proceeding that would be 
     bound by the rates and terms. Except as otherwise provided in 
     this title, the rates and terms, to the extent applicable, 
     shall remain in effect until such successor rates and terms 
     become effective.
       ``(C) Obligation to make payments.--
       ``(i) The pendency of an appeal under this subsection shall 
     not relieve persons obligated to make royalty payments under 
     section 111, 112, 114, 115, 116, 118, 119, or 1003, who would 
     be affected by the determination on appeal, from--

       ``(I) providing the statements of account and any report of 
     use; and

     Royalty Judges to which such royalties are paid by the 
     copyright user (and any successor thereto) shall, within 60 
     days after the final resolution of the appeal, return any 
     excess amounts previously paid (and interest thereon, if 
     ordered pursuant to paragraph (3)) to the extent necessary to 
     comply with the final determination of royalty rates on 
     appeal. Any underpayment of royalties resulting from an 
     appeal (and interest thereon, if ordered pursuant to 
     paragraph (3)) shall be paid within the same period.
       ``(3) Jurisdiction of court.--If the court, pursuant to 
     section 706 of title 5, modifies or vacates a determination 
     of the Copyright Royalty Judges, the court may enter its own 
     determination with respect to the amount or distribution of 
     royalty fees and costs, and order the repayment of any excess 
     fees, the payment of any underpaid fees, and the payment of 
     interest pertaining respectively thereto, in accordance with 
     its final judgment. The court may also vacate the 
     determination of the Copyright Royalty Judges and remand the 
     case to the Copyright Royalty Judges for further proceedings 
     in accordance with subsection (a).

     SEC. 101. FINDINGS AND DECLARATIONS.

       Section 2 of the Public Works and Economic Development Act 
     of 1965 (42 U.S.C. 3121) is amended to read as follows:

     ``SEC. 2. FINDINGS AND DECLARATIONS.

       ``(a) Findings.--Congress finds that--
       ``(1) there continue to be areas of the United States 
     experiencing chronic high unemployment, underemployment, 
     outmigration, and low per capita incomes, as well as areas 
     facing sudden and severe economic dislocations because of 
     structural economic changes, changing trade patterns, certain 
     Federal actions (including environmental requirements that 
     result in the removal of economic activities from a 
     locality), and natural disasters;
       ``(2) economic growth in the States, cities, and rural 
     areas of the United States is produced by expanding economic 
     opportunities, expanding free enterprise through trade, 
     developing and strengthening public infrastructure, and 
     creating a climate for job creation and business development;
       ``(3) the goal of Federal economic development programs is 
     to raise the standard of living for all citizens and increase 
     the wealth and overall rate of growth of the economy by 
     encouraging communities to develop a more competitive and 
     diversified economic base by--
       ``(A) creating an environment that promotes economic 
     activity by improving and expanding public infrastructure;
       ``(B) promoting job creation through increased innovation, 
     productivity, and entrepreneurship; and
       ``(C) empowering local and regional communities 
     experiencing chronic high unemployment and low per capita 
     income to develop private sector business and attract 
     increased private sector capital investment;
       ``(4) while economic development is an inherently local 
     process, the Federal Government should work in partnership 
     with public and private State, regional, tribal, and local 
     organizations to maximize the impact of existing resources 
     and enable regions, communities, and citizens to participate 
     more fully in the American dream and national prosperity;
       ``(5) in order to avoid duplication of effort and achieve 
     meaningful, long-lasting results, Federal, State, tribal, and 
     local economic development activities should have a clear 
     focus, improved coordination, a comprehensive approach, and 
     simplified and consistent requirements; and
       ``(6) Federal economic development efforts will be more 
     effective if the efforts are coordinated with, and build 
     upon, the trade, workforce investment, transportation, and 
     technology programs of the United States.
       ``(b) Declarations.--In order to promote a strong and 
     growing economy throughout the United States, Congress 
     declares that--
       ``(1) assistance under this Act should be made available to 
     both rural- and urban-distressed communities;
       ``(2) local communities should work in partnership with 
     neighboring communities, the States, Indian tribes, and the 
     Federal Government to increase the capacity of the local 
     communities to develop and implement comprehensive economic 
     development strategies to alleviate economic distress and 
     enhance competitiveness in the global economy;
       ``(3) whether suffering from long-term distress or a sudden 
     dislocation, distressed communities should be encouraged to 
     support entrepreneurship to take advantage of the development 
     opportunities afforded by technological innovation and 
     expanding newly opened global markets; and
       ``(4) assistance under this Act should be made available to 
     promote the productive reuse of abandoned industrial 
     facilities and the redevelopment of brownfields.''.

                  TITLE II--WINDSTORM IMPACT REDUCTION

     SEC. 201. SHORT TITLE.

       This Act may be cited as the ``National Windstorm Impact 
     Reduction Act of 2004''.

     SEC. 202. FINDINGS.

       The Congress finds the following:
       (1) Hurricanes, tropical storms, tornadoes, and 
     thunderstorms can cause significant loss of life, injury, 
     destruction of property, and economic and social disruption. 
     All States and regions are vulnerable to these hazards.
       (2) The United States currently sustains several billion 
     dollars in economic damages each year due to these 
     windstorms. In recent decades, rapid development and 
     population growth in high-risk areas has greatly increased 
     overall vulnerability to windstorms.
       (3) Improved windstorm impact reduction measures have the 
     potential to reduce these losses through--
       (A) cost-effective and affordable design and construction 
     methods and practices;
       (B) effective mitigation programs at the local, State, and 
     national level;
       (C) improved data collection and analysis and impact 
     prediction methodologies;
       (D) engineering research on improving new structures and 
     retrofitting existing ones to better withstand windstorms, 
     atmospheric-related research to better understand the 
     behavior and impact of windstorms on the built environment, 
     and subsequent application of those research results; and
       (E) public education and outreach.
       (4) There is an appropriate role for the Federal Government 
     in supporting windstorm impact reduction. An effective 
     Federal program in windstorm impact reduction will require 
     interagency coordination, and input from individuals, 
     academia, the private sector, and other interested non-
     Federal entities.
