U.S. Copyright Office Extends Comment Period for Interim Rules on Secure Tests
Issue No. 699 - January 16, 2018

The United States Copyright Office is extending the deadline for the submission of written comments in response to two interim rules governing the registration of secure tests. The first interim rule, issued June 12, 2017, memorialized the Office’s special procedures for examining such tests. The second interim rule, issued November 13, 2017, established a new group registration option for secure test questions. The Office previously extended the deadline for the submission of written comments on these rules, and is now further extending the deadline by an additional sixty days to ensure that members of the pubic have sufficient time to respond. Comments must be received no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on April 2, 2018.
