Aggregate Tuning Hours Law and Legal Definition

According to 37 CFR 261.2 [Title 37 Patents, Trademarks, and Copyrights; Chapter II Copyright Office, Library of Congress; Subchapter B Copyright Arbitration Royalty Panel Rules and Procedures; Part 261 Rates and Terms for Eligible Nonsubscription Transmissions and the Making of Ephemeral Reproductions], Aggregate Tuning Hours mean the total hours of programming that the Licensee has transmitted over the Internet during the relevant period to all end users within the United States from all channels and stations that provide audio programming consisting, in whole or in part, of eligible nonsubscription transmissions. By way of example, if a service transmitted one hour of programming to 10 simultaneous listeners, the service's Aggregate Tuning Hours would equal 10. Likewise, if one listener listened to a service for 10 hours, the service's Aggregate Tuning Hours would equal 10.
