Why is there a need for an office action in this case?  My understand is 
that office actions are for time-sensitive matters that are particularly 
unusual. Deleting copyright violations is a very normal thing that we do 
routinely; there's no need for some sort of Official Intervention to do 
so, and even Normal Wikipedians can request such deletions and have 
their requests honored.
