The article reports that cable operators will pay more in copyright royalties to import out-of-market television (TV) signals under a proposal released by the U.S. Copyright Office. The Office requires cable to pay more in cases where the distant TV station is beaming a single digital programming service and multiple services. The Office tentatively rejected the argument of the National Cable & Telecommunications Association that copyright royalties should be assessed on a per-station basis.
