I was actually talking about software manuals, which have a shorter
gestation period. Of course, if you start writing a novel in 2007 or
even write down your ideas for it, it is copyrightable in 2007 (although
you might have to have a way to prove it, which is where the mailing
yourself something in a sealed envelope comes in) even if you publish in
2010. But my point is that it's not copyrightable in 2006.

Authors frequently submit their work for publication with a copyright
notice. Sometimes it never gets published. How could it be against the
law to claim a copyright before the work has been published?
