  §  5.217   Rebroadcasts.

   (a) The term rebroadcast means reception by radio of the programs or
   other transmissions of a broadcast station, and the simultaneous or
   subsequent retransmission of such programs or transmissions by a
   broadcast station.

   (1) As used in this section, the word “program” includes any complete
   program or part thereof.

   (2) The transmission of a program from its point of origin to a
   broadcast station entirely by common carrier facilities, whether by
   wire line or radio, is not considered a rebroadcast.

   (3) The broadcasting of a program relayed by a remote broadcast pickup
   station is not considered a rebroadcast.

   (b) No licensee of a broadcast experimental radio station may
   retransmit the program of another U.S. broadcast station without the
   express authority of the originating station. A copy of the written
   consent of the licensee originating the program must be kept by the
   licensee of the broadcast experimental radio station retransmitting
   such program and made available to the FCC upon request.
