OFFICE PUBLISHES INTERIM REGULATIONS AND REQUEST
FOR COMMENTS ON NOTICE TO LIBRARIES AND ARCHIVES
OF NORMAL COMMERCIAL EXPLOITATION OR AVAILABILITY
AT REASONABLE PRICE
The Copyright Office of the Library of Congress is issuing interim
regulations and requesting comment on the requirements by which a
copyright owner or its agent may provide notice to libraries and
archives that a published work in the final 20 years of its extended
term of copyright is subject to normal commercial exploitation or that a
copy or phonorecord of the work can be obtained at a reasonable price.
The Office is issuing interim regulations in order to have the notice
requirements in place on January 1, 1999, the date on which works will
first enter their extended copyright term. Final regulations will be
promulgated following the Office review of public comments.
  The interim regulations are effective January 1, 1999. Comments must
be submitted on or before February 15, 1999. Reply comments are due on
or before April 1, 1999.
  Background on the interim regulations, and a link to the regulations
and samples of the required format for Notices to Libraries and Archives
may be found at the Copyright Office's Website at
http://www.loc.gov/copyright/cpypub/nla.html. When the Federal Register
notice is published within the next few days, NewsNet will publish the
citation here.
