Ever just decide to go an search through the United States Copyright Office's files? Sounds like fun, huh? Well, it's not, and shame on you for thinking so - unless you have a copyright on file, in which case it becomes LOTS OF FUN (trust me on this).
The above screenshot is from the Copyright Office's website, where it lists Teddy and the Yeti and lots of information regarding it - publication type, concept title, print date, creator history, date of birth, my (former) address...holy crap, should all that stuff be on the Internets for anyone to see? Apparently so, says the government. Oh well, says I: now I have a record that says I existed on file in a governmental office. And I think that's just swell.
