Scheduling News in Webcasting Royalty Appeal

Stanford's Cyberlaw Clinic will be closed up tight this holiday week, but on December 29, the Librarian of Congress will be filing his brief in response to the various consolidated appeals from his June, 2002 Order setting rates and terms for digital transmission rights used in webcasting. Under the D.C. Circuit's new scheduling order of November 13, reply briefs by petitioners will be due February 12, 2004, the deferred appendix on February 19, final briefs on March 4. And then, perhaps, at long last, the Court will set a hearing date for oral argument.
