Because It's Sunday and I'm Tired, That's Why

Saw this effortless meme at Chichimama:

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that cool or intellectual book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.

Okay, pay attention, class! From the estimable American Medical Association Manual of Style, I give you the following pearls of copyright wisdom:

All copyright notices should be placed in a such a "manner and location as to give reasonable notice of the claim of copyright." Such placement applies to print and digital works. Registration and deposit of a work with the Copyright Office in Washington, DC, are provided for under the provisions of the 1976 Act.
