From recent book review in The VVA Veteran, Magazine of the Vietnam Veterans of America:

Tags: Writers Beware: US Copyright Registry

For any writers wishing to register their manuscripts, beware of U.S. Copyright Registry. Its website looks like a governmental operation affiliated with the Library of Congress. But it's a private firm, charging excessive "service fees" ($135 or more) in addition to standard copyright filing fees.

Simon examines the dangerous atmosphere affecting not only political coverage in the U.S. (e.g., Trump campaign) but safety/welfare of journalists worldwide. http://www.cjr.org/first_person/why_journalists_should_be_afraid_of_trumps_media_strategy.php
