Royalty in brief

The federal Court of Appeals in Washington has granted the motion of Royalty Logic to file its supplemental brief in the appeal of the Copyright Royalty Board's webcaster rate decision last year. The brief argues that the appointment of the copyright royalty judges was unconstitutional. The brief raises the question of whether the law creating the CRB, which provided the Librarian of Congress with the authority and obligation to appoint the CRJs, violates the "appointments" clause of the Constitution. Royalty Logic claims that only the president, high-level executive office officials or judges may properly appoint individuals that hold the powers that the CRJs hold. CRB and SoundExchange must file their supplemental briefs on the issue by June 23.
