APPENDIX

ANALYSIS OF COPYRIGHT FEE IMPACT OF H.R. 2223 AND
TELEPROMPTER PROPOSAL UPON SYSTEMS LOCATED WITHIN
THE CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICTS OF MEMBERS OF THE

HOUSE JUDICIARY SUBCOMMITTEE ON THE COURTS,
CIVIL LIBERTIES, AND THE ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE

In addition to the study presented in the body of

this report, we were requested by MPAA to prepare an analysis

of copyright fee liability under H.R. 2223 and the TPT proposal for systems located within the Congressional Districts of members of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Courts,

Civil Liberties, and the Administration of Justice.

Pursuant

to this analysis, MPAA furnished us with a list of those cable systems which they determined to lie within each such Congressional District. Time constraints did not permit verification

of these data; accordingly, the results of this analysis necessarily reflect the data provided by MPAA.

I.

COPYRIGHT FEE IMPACT OF H.R. 2223 ON CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT
SYSTEMS

Table 1 summarizes copyright liability under the

H.R. 2223 fee schedule for the 23 cable systems in the six

Congressional Districts selected for analysis. Liability amounts to less than nine-tenths of 1 percent (0.84 percent)

of total system revenues, or 4.9 cents per subscriber per

month as in Columns (6) and (7).

The range is from a high of

0.96 percent and 5.6 cents for the eight systems in the Illinois 19th, to a low of 0.50 percent and 2.5 cents for the

single system in the New York 21st.
