I think a better ploy might be for all unregistered works to be copyleft or at
least all unmarked works. (unmarked = no copyright notice)
Plus, the copyright office shold have to make public on the net a list of all
works ever registered and all that have passed into the public domain. And
more ambitiously, digitize and make available for download, all works that
have passed into the public domain.
