1 An interactive service is one in which an end-user may receive a copy of a program created specially for that end-user, or may request the transmission of a particular sound recording selected by that individual end user. Essentially, your service will be considered interactive if sound recordings are performed within 1 hour of a request by an end-user or are transmitted at a time designated by the end-user. If an entity offers both interactive and noninteractive services, the noninteractive service will not be treated as part of the interactive service.
