A BILL

To amend title 17, United States Code, to enable a public broadcaster to obtain statutory licenses for the transmission of sound recordings online, unless a substantial portion of the sound recordings transmitted, on a weekly basis, are by the same featured recording artist or of the same musical work, and for other purposes.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. Short title.

This Act may be cited as the “Public Radio Music Enhancement Act of 2010”.

SEC. 2. Transmissions by public broadcasting entities.

Section 114(j)(13) of title 17, United States Code, is amended by adding at the end the following: “For purposes of subsection (d), any transmission by a public broadcasting entity (as defined in section 118(f) of this title) on a particular channel shall be deemed to qualify as a sound recording performance complement, and therefore not to exceed the sound recording performance complement. The preceding sentence shall not apply if, on a weekly basis, a substantial portion of sound recordings transmitted on the channel are by the same featured recording artist or are of the same musical work.”
