On July 5, 2012, the FCC released a Public Notice seeking comment on 5 petitions for exemption from the FCC’s closed captioning rules. Petitioners claim that compliance would be “economically burdensome” for them, as this standard is defined in Section 79.1(f) of the Commission’s rules, 47 C.F.R. § 79.1(f).
Comments and oppositions are due within 30 days from the date of this public notice. The case identifier must be placed on all filings. Comments and oppositions sent via e-mail to the Commission will be considered informal and are not part of the official record.
