Will copyright hamper IP closed captioning?

http://j.mp/t9cuJy  (ars technica)
    "The Federal Communications Commission is in the process of
     implementing the Twenty-First Century Communications and Video
     Accessibility Act. Passed by Congress last year, the CCVA requires the
     FCC revise its rules to mandate closed captioning on IP television,
     and the Commission is running a proceeding on how to implement the
     law. Not surprisingly, copyright questions are coming up fast in
     discussions between the agency and video providers, especially when it
     comes to enhancing captions in various ways."
