    In addition to the copyright notices, McFarlane registered
    copyright on the issues and the books.
    ... McFarlane’s registrations no more revealed an intent to claim

Registration of copyright in a work is not a claim
against any co-authors who may exist. It is a formal
notice by an author that he has copyright in the work.
