Copyright myths

People believe some weird things about copyright (and don't get me started on the other parts of this person's beliefs!).  No, you can't copyright your face.  I did once do an exam question about the copyrightability of plastic surgery, though.

I'm curious if he actually took a photo of himself and registered it with the Copyright Office. Perhaps he mailed it to himself instead.

Maybe he actually knew that works are born copyrighted these days.
