this is what a consulted-lawyer told me and what someone at the ASMP told me 8 years ago.

you are welcome to try but you won't get far.
Makes sense. I would assume they would want you to sort things out with the copyright office before wasting the courts time.

In your case why did you think you held the copyright? Why didn't you simply register it and then go to court when you realized there was a problem? Why didn't the lawyer recommend just registering?
