Your knowledge of copyright is woefully out of date.  The United
States has been a signatory to the Berne copyright convention since
1989 (as are 169 other nations), and US and European copyright
practices are the same.

The principal difference I'm aware of is duration of copyright.
Copyright in the US and most other places is "Author's life plus 70
years".  (It used to be Life + 50.  That got changed in the US after a
push by DisneyCo because Mickey Mouse was about to lapse into the
public domain.  Canada is still Life + 50).

There is no requirement for renewal, nor is there requirement to
register.  Copyright exists automatically upon completion of the work.
(Registration of copyright with the Library of Congress in the US
allows you to sue for higher damages in the event of infringement, but
is not needed to *have* copyright.)

Mobile security can be enabling, not merely restricting. Employees who
bring their own devices (BYOD) to work are irked by the imposition of MDM
restrictions. Mobile Device Manager Plus allows you to control only the
apps on BYO-devices by containerizing them, leaving personal data untouched!
