If I Don't Have To Register My Copyright For Protection, Why Not Wait Until There Is An Infringement Before Registering It?

You can wait until an infringement, but it will have a serious impact on any financial recovery. It is important to remember that you are qualified for a substantially larger award if published works are registered with­in three months of publication, and if non­published work is registered prior to an infringement. In addition, registration allows for the award of attorney`s fees.

In addition, compared to other intellectual property copyright registration is relatively cheap at $30.00!
