What is considered a "published" work for copyright purposes? When we submit art to our agents? When we post it on our website? When we submit it on CD or hard copy to prospective licensees or existing licensees on spec?
What is considered acceptable for a "group" copyright registration? I need a definition of an acceptable "group". I register my work quarterly as a group. Is this OK?
I also consider my work "published" as soon as I present it to others for possible licensing. It's somewhat unrestricted because at this point they are considering many possible uses.
