Satellite Royalty Claim Forms

The Copyright Royalty Board offers the following online and printable forms for filing of claims to satellite royalty fees. These forms are available only during the filing period which this year is July 1, 2016, through August 1, 2016 (because July 31 is a nonbusiness day).

The deadline for filing the 2015 satellite claims is 5 p.m. on August 1, 2016. Any claim filed before July 1 or after the deadline will be rejected.

Online Forms:

The Board strongly encourages you to file your claim online.

Printable Forms:

If you choose to submit a paper claim instead of filing your claim online, you may fill out the claim form on your computer, print it, sign it, and send it to the Copyright Royalty Board. Please pay close attention to the instructions regarding where to send a paper claim because the address varies depending on the delivery method you choose.

The Board will not accept alternative versions of the printable forms. You must use the actual printable forms posted on the website.

For further information, please see Subpart B of Part 360 of the Code of Federal Regulations at
