PDN lets us know of the backlog at the Copyright Office. I suspect this is digital cameras fault.
The U.S. Copyright Office says it has an eight-month backlog for processing paper registrations.
The quicker alternative, registering online, is still in the testing phase and is only available to people who have signed up as beta testers.
In an announcement posted on its web site last week, the Copyright Office blames the backlog on the transition from paper to electronic applications.
