Washington, D.C. – Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) issued the following statement after receiving U.S. Copyright Office analysis regarding the copyright policy implications of the Federal Communications Commission’s notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) in the matter of Expanding Consumer’s Video Navigation Choices, Commercial Availability of Navigation Devices, also known as the set-top-box proposal.

The Copyright Office analysis responds to a bipartisan request from Representatives Blackburn (R-TN), Butterfield (D-NC), Collins (R-GA) and Deutsch (D-CA) for the Copyright Office’s comment issued on July 15th, and maintains that the NPRM would detrimentally impact copyright owners and consumers by compelling transmission of copyright protected content without programmers’ consent.
