Hughes serves dish bill

House copyright subcommittee chairman William Hughes (D-N.J.) yesterday offered legislation ensuring continued delivery of TV programming to backyard dish owners.

The bill is designed to extend the Satellite Home Viewer Act beyond 1994. It provides compulsory copyright protection allowing sat companies to deliver superstation signals to dish owners for a minimal, government-set fee.

Rep. Carlos Moorhead (R-Calif.), the panel’s ranking Republican, is a co-sponsor. The bill also would give compulsory license protection to “wireless” cable ops.
