Well, this would be for "registered" copyrights by definition.  But while
I am at it, I disagree with things being copyrighted by default, and an
awefully lot of other people must not be so sure of it either, since they
bother to put copyright notices on things.  Last I checked, there were
quite a few rights you didn't enjoy if you neglect to put the proper
notice on the work (and if you odn't register it).

Things that have copyright notices now could be put in the database.
