There has been talk off and on about privatizing certain government agencies, such as Social Security and The US Postal Service. I'm wondering if copyright registration can and should be privatized. The two reasons at the top of my list are:
1. Private registration would undoubtedly be cheaper.
2. Private registration would take far less time than a registration through the Copyright Office.
I'm aware that registrations through private agencies do not offer the same degree of protection as a registration through the Copyright Office. As long as private copyright agencies adhere to the same criteria used by the Copyright Office, registrants should enjoy the same full protection under the law.
Has anyone attempted to lobby Congress on this idea?
