copy machines in libraries.) The correct thing to do is to put a Copyright
notice on the work EACH and EVERY time it is published.>>

I believe Copyright laws apply to all forms of writing, without requiring
the writer to register it officially as Copyrighted material. If the
Copyright is violated and the writer wishes to sue for damages they can sue
for more $$ if they have registered the work.
