1708.6 No Expedited Review


Special handling is a procedure for expediting the examination of an application to register a claim to copyright or the recordation of a transfer or other document pertaining to copyright. The U.S. Copyright Office offers this service in certain circumstances where a copyright owner or other interested parties have a compelling reason for the expedited issuance of a certificate. As discussed in Chapter 600, Section 623.2, the Office will not grant a request for special handling in connection with a first or second request for reconsideration.
