The final regulations were published in the Federal Register on March 28.

The Judges also corrected an outdated cross-reference in 37 CFR Part 385, Rates and Terms for Use of Musical Works under Compulsory License for Making and Distributing of Physical and Digital Phonorecords. Section 385.4 is amended by removing §201.19(e)(7)(i) and adding §210.16(g)(l) in its place.
