1708.4 Withdrawing a Request for Reconsideration
An applicant may submit a request to withdraw a first or second request for reconsideration at any time before the U.S. Copyright Office has issued its decision. The request should be made in writing, it should indicate whether the requested withdrawal involves a “FIRST” or “SECOND” request, and it should be sent to the address specified in Section 1708.2. The decision whether to approve or deny the request will be made at the discretion of the Office. The filing fee will not be refunded and the Office will not reinstate a request for reconsideration once it has been withdrawn.
