Copyright Limbo

The copyright backlog lengthens beyond eighteen months...the new new $52 million goverment computer system is a Fail.

What a racket.

The delays do not appear to be hampering the business of the major publishing houses or those willing to spend $685 for a "special handling fee" that expedites registration. But the slowdown is frustrating hundreds of thousands of little-known people with big dreams. They paid $45 for the right to claim legal ownership of poems, fabric designs, plays, jingles, even computer manuals.
