Dear Terry,

As a regular reader and contributor to this list, I wish to thank you
for providing this very useful, helpful, and concisely written

I think the point of the undeveloped film being protected under
copyright is so that an unscrupulous lab or film processor might
otherwise attempt to claim copyright on a clients film images, and it
might otherwise be difficult for the photographer to claim ownership of
the latent images if no copyright existed prior to the development of
the images.

As a further twist, I understand Allied Science Fiction has a process
which allows them to scan an image prior to completion of development.
