I can tell you why the poor man's letter or envelope will not work.
Exhibit A. You go to trial for a case and use the envelope as evidence to prove your case. The judge orders your lawyer to open the sealed containment in order to prove your claim. You prove your claim and win the case, end of story you go home happy and rich.

Then one year later another person infringes your copyright, only now you've already opened the seal that won your case before, uh oh, what now? You will lose the case because you only had one sealed envelope. You need to think of the bigger picture sometimes.

If a person is really that successful that people are taking their work from them and they easily know about it, you need to think of a bigger plan because music is not a one versus one world it's a community of billions of people.

Er - but you now have a previous court case that proves your copyright.

So this case can be quoted in any subsequant case.

Yep, that thought immediately occurred to me too John.
