The petitioners listed in the document DA 12-1833 Appendix did not take one of the above steps by July 5, 2012; therefore, their respective petitions were dismissed on July 5, 2012. Accordingly, these petitioners were required to begin captioning their programs on July 6, 2012. In this regard, the Bureau notes that if the programming that was the subject of a petition listed herein aired without captions after the dismissal date of July 5, 2012, the video programming distributor that aired such programming may be in violation of the Commission's closed captioning rules from that date up until the time that a new petition is filed.
If any petitioner listed in DA 12-1833 filed a new petition after July 6, 2012, such petition is considered pending as of the date it was received at the Commission. While a petition for exemption is pending, the video programming that is subject to the petition is exempt from the closed captioning requirements.
