§251.56 Order of the Librarian of Congress.

After the filing of post-panel motions, see § 251.55, but within 90 days from receipt of the report of the determination of a panel, the Librarian of Congress shall issue an order accepting the panel's determination or substituting the Librarian's own determination. The Librarian shall adopt the determination of the panel unless he or she finds that the determination is arbitrary or contrary to the applicable provisions of 17 U.S.C.
If the Librarian substitutes his or her own determination, the Librarian shall have an additional 30 days to issue the order which shall set forth the reasons for not accepting the panel's determination, and shall set forth the facts which the Librarian found relevant to his or her determination.
The Librarian shall cause a copy of the order to be delivered to all parties participating in the proceeding. The Librarian shall also publish the order, and the determination of the panel, in the FEDERAL REGISTER.
