Notions about intellectual property may be changing, but copyright is still a big deal to folks who want to be sure they are recognized/paid for their work. Unfortunately for most applicants, the process of obtaining a copyright is long and getting longer. The Washington Post reported Tuesday that glitches in a new system intended to improve the application process are responsible for the growing delay. Fun fact: According to the 2007 Copyright Office Annual Report, 526,378 claims to copyright were registered — no matter how you look at it, that's a lot of paperwork! To the folks at the Copyright Office I say: "Courage."
