it took me 25+ years to get here, and if i destroy my negatives, it will put me back 25 years,
i am too lazy to do it all over again ... besides i will probably be dead in 25 years
and don't plan on making photographs from the grave.
it is labor intensive making the prints (images) since i will be doing it all by hand
. ... not sure how including the negative is considered more effort .. the negative is already made ...
i guess if you only processing film making the negative is the hard part ... ?
the copyright office doesn't retain negatives
Why not send the negative as the copywrite <sic> registration .... Then they have it and you don't have to deal with it...
