Guess my IP lawyer didn't know anything as he certainly didn't say that whatsoever. I don't pretend to be a lawyer nor do I play one on TV but I do know the one I hired said we were taking the guy to court before they settled.
After one incident though, you wise up and file for actual copyrights just to make life easier.
1. Free advice isn't worth much.
2. I don't claim to know your attorney but you can pay legal fees all you wish... you will never see the inside of a court to hear your case without an issuance number.
3. Exceptions are many... your attorney can file and be heard for default judgment but will lose 100% of the time without an issuance number because you have no proof of copyright.
