 Webcasting Determination
The CARP concluded that the Internet-only rates in the agreement were artificially high and the rates for radio retransmissions were artifically low, a result of RIAA’s strategy to agree to a lower rate for radio retransmissions in order to obtain the higher rate for Internet-only transmissions.
The CARP found that RIAA wanted the high Internet-only transmission rate in order to establish a precedent to present to the CARP in support of the rate for Internet-only transmissions that it had been seeking in negotiations with other parties and that it was seeking in the CARP proceeding.
The CARP agreed that there should be reduced rates for transmissions made by non-CPB, noncommercial stations to reflect their unique funding structure, noting that noncommercial stations depend upon funding from the government, business and viewers whereas commercial broadcasters generate a revenue stream through advertising.

In practice in Washington, grass carp often fail to control the plants or all the submersed plants are eliminated from the waterbody.
To prevent stocked grass carp from migrating out of the lake and into streams and rivers, all inlets and outlets to the pond or lake must be screened.

 PF: Firewall Redundancy with CARP and pfsync
CARP is a secure, free alternative to the Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) and the Hot Standby Router Protocol (HSRP).
By default, CARP will try to determine which interface to use by looking for a physical interface that is in the same subnet as the ipaddress and mask combination given to the carp(4) interface.
When a CARP host advertises itself on the network, it takes the sum of the demotion counters for each interface group the carp(4) interface belongs to and advertises that value as its demotion value.

 Firewall Failover with pfsync and CARP
CARP hosts respond to ARP requests for the common address with the virtual MAC address, and the CARP advertisements themselves are sent out with this as the source address, which helps switches quickly determine which port the virtual MAC address is currently "at".
CARP has an "arpbalance" feature that allows multiple hosts to share a single IP address simultaneously; in this configuration, there is a virtual MAC address for each host, but only one IP address.
Therefore, in the interface context, such as "pass in on $extif...", $extif would be the physical interface, but in the context of "from $foo" or "to $foo", the carp interface should be used, as it's being meant in the address context.

 6 - Networking
CARP is a tool to help achieve system redundancy, by having multiple computers creating a single, virtual network interface between them, so that if any machine fails, another can respond instead, and/or allowing a degree of load sharing between systems.
CARP's design does require that the members of a group be on the same physical subnet with a static IP address, although with the introduction of the carpdev directive, there is no more need for IP addresses on the physical interfaces.
CARP by itself does not synchronize data between applications, this has to be done through "alternative channels" such as pfsync(4) (for redundant filtering), manually duplicating data between boxes with rsync, or whatever is appropriate for your application.

 U.S. Copyright Office - Licensing and CARP Information
The current CARP system consists of ad hoc arbitration panels that recommend the royalty rates and distribution of royalty fees collected under certain of the statutory licenses and set some of the terms and conditions of some of the statutory licenses.
Each CARP is selected for a particular proceeding (examples: a rate adjustment for the cable statutory license; a distribution of digital audio recording technology funds) and has up to 180 days to deliver its recommendation for the rate adjustment or distribution, as the case may be.
The Act replaced CARP (which itself replaced the CRT in 1993) with a system of three Copyright Royalty Judges (CRJ), who will determine rates and terms for the copyright statutory licenses and make determinations on distribution of statutory license royalties collected by the Copyright Office.
