102.3 Administrative Procedure Act
Congress expressly made the Register’s actions under the Copyright Act subject to the provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act of June 11, 1946, as amended. 17 U.S.C. § 701 (E). Congress legislated only one express exception to this rule: Section 706 (B) of the Copyright Act which provides for the U.S. Copyright Office to issue regulations specifying the conditions under which the Office may authorize or furnish copies or reproductions of deposited articles retained by the Office.
