[TImothy Auld] "I am quite curious as to whether you have ever registered any copyrights."

The answer is "not yet"...but I fail to see what your point is. Do you think I am incapable of understanding that I could have my work infringed upon if I haven't yet filed a copyright? Because I am very much aware of that. Do you believe the Gods of Copyright will curse my work forever if I'm not a hawk on copyright infringement issues? Not hardly.

I prefer to see things as they are, not take some hard stance on an issue that has many grey areas (how many hardliners here have probably unknowingly violated copyright?). Burying my head in the sand as to the reality of how copyright infringement can actually launch a career (Trey Parker and Matt Stone had their first South Park short copied and distributed on VHS, which ultimately landed them a show) and how, in the end, it's not really so bad within certain contexts.

And Randy Ubilious, for all his work has been infringed, probably has way more cash at his disposal than most of us here, so I don't think he's suffered from having a work that was infringed...if I could be so successful with my work being infringed upon, I'd take that in a heartbeat.
