As for the original poster:
Here’s a glimpse into the future for guys like you……
somebody gets your film and starts renting it out.
you have not registered your copyright.
you do nothing to protect your copyright.
Our Governments in thier infinate wisdom pass the new copyright legislation that’s been proposed with the “Orphaned Works” clause in it.
Somebody, who acted in your film hits it big and goes on to become famous.
Some distributer, or agent, or studio lays claim to your film as an “Orphaned Work” and sets up a distribution deal and makes millions.
You’re F@##$ed out of ANY cut of the profits because you abandoned the work. You failed to protect your copyright.
