The Copyright Office has published an interim rule that amends its regulations regarding the examination procedures for secure tests and secure test items. To protect confidentiality, the Office has long maintained procedures under which applications to register these materials are examined in person in Washington, D.C. In light of the COVID-19 emergency, in-person examinations have been temporarily suspended. Under today’s interim rule, Copyright Office staff may now perform such examinations remotely via secure videoconference. For more information, please visit the Office’s website.
