So that's where the Copyright Application is sitting!

Via Reason's blogU.S. Copyright Office implements new system to speed up process, ends up taking three times as long to approve applications.

A gem from the Washington Post item:

The irony is that the slowdown stems from a new $52 million electronic process that is supposed to speed the way writers and others register their literary, musical or visual work.
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


So, John, looks like you can stop holding your breath on updating this:

One thing that government does better than a free market, looking out for the little guy.
