date of registration for an authorized edition of the work, the copies of which have been manufactured in the L'nited States or

Infringing importation of copies or phonorecords
(a) Importation into the United States, without the authority of the owner of copyright under this title, of copies or phonorecords of a work that have been acquired abroad is an infringement of the exclusive right to distribute copies or phonorecords under section 106, actionable under section 501. This subsection does not apply to:
(1) importation of copies or phonorecords under the authority or for the use of the government of the United States or of any State or political subdivision of a State but not including copies or phonorecords for use in schools, or copies of any audiovisual work imported for purposes other than archival use;
(2) importation, for the private use of the importer and not for distribution, by any person with respect to no more than one copy or phonorecord of any one work at any one time, or by any person arriving from abroad with respect to copies or phonorecords forming part of his personal baggage; or
(3) importation by or for an organization operated for scholarly, educational, or religious purposes and not for private gain, with respect to no more than one copy of an audiovisual work solely for its archival purposes, and no more than five copies or phonorecords of any other work for its library lending or archival
purposes. (b) In a case where the making of the copies or phonorecords would have constituted an infringement of copyright if this title had been applicable, their importation is prohibited. In a case where the copies or phonorecords were lawfully made, the Bureau of Customs has no authority to prevent their importation unless the provisions of section 601 are applicable. In either case, the Secretary of the Treasury is authorized to prescribe, by regulation, a procedure under which any
person claiming an interest in the copyright in a particular work may, 2 upon payment of a specified fee, be entitled to notification by the 3 Bureau of the importation of articles that appear to be copies or 4 phonorecords of the work. 5 8 603. Importation prohibitions: Enforcement and disposition of
excluded articles 7 (a) The Secretary of the Treasury and the United States Postal 8 Service shall separately or jointly make regulations for the enforce9 ment of the provisions of this title prohibiting importation.
(b) These regulations may require, as a condition for the exclusion 11 of articles under section 602:
(1) that the person seeking exclusion obtain a court order enjoining importation of the articles; or
(2) that he furnish proof, of a specified nature and in accordance with prescribed procedures, that the copyright in which he claims an interest is valid and that the importation would violate the prohibition in section 602; he may also be required to post a surety bond for any injury that may result if the detention or
exclusion of the articles proves to be unjustified. 20 (c) Articles imported in violation of the importation prohibitions 21 of this title are subject to seizure and forfeiture in the same manner 22 as property imported in violation of the customs revenue laws. For23 feited articles shall be destroyed as directed by the Secretary of the
Treasury or the court, as the case may be : however, the articles may be 25 returned to the country of export whenever it is shown to the satisfac26 tion of the Secretary of the Treasury that the importer had no reasonable grounds for believing that his acts constituted a violation of law.
