US Copyright Office contemplates going IE only for new site

The battle over web standards may be moving to Washington, DC. The US Copyright Office is currently looking for feedback on plans to restrict a new website to users of Internet Explorer. At issue is an upcoming site where people could preregister commercial works in progress (e.g., movies, books). That would allow novelists, for example, to sue if parts of their book were leaked prior to publication.
