I'm researching whether or not any companies or developers that use Git
would be interested in a service that helped with copyright registration of
Registration gives you the ability to sue if someone violates your chosen
license and provides additional remedies. Even if you never want to be in
a lawsuit, registration could make it easier to get someone to stop
infringing and comply with license conditions because they will realize
there could be consequences to their failure to comply. See
http://fairuse.stanford.edu/overview/faqs/software/. You can do it
yourself, but it can be painful and tedious.
1) If you are already registering your code, how are you doing it and how
much does it cost you?
2) Whether or not you currently register your source code with the
copyright office, would you use a service integrated with GitHub or
Bitbucket that made it very easy? If so, would you pay for the service
(assuming it was guaranteed and legitimate)?
3) Would open source developers/projects/foundations be interested or would
this only be useful for proprietary code?
Thanks very much.
