    I found some interesting information on the U.S. Copyright Office website. I think everyone should have a look at it. You can do electronic registration of collections of work. I am not a lawyer, but what I'm thinking of doing is scanning in work as I create it and doing mass registrations in collections titled 2012, 2013, etc. We really need more awareness about this. I believe normal registration of collections without special handling is $35.

    They are not "proving" they have the copyright. If a work is in the public domain you can use it without paying royalties. It is up to you to "prove" you have the copyright. None of us is lawyers, but from a reading of the U.S. copyright website you need to register your copyright before mounting a legal action. You may own the copyright but our novice interpretation of the U.S. copyright website leads us to believe without registration you cannot bring a successful legal action.
