I have a legal question for anyone out there.  Does it matter where the
copyright is placed in a film?  Specifically, if the copyright is placed
at the end of the credits does that have any bearing--leagally--on
anything that might come after the credits?  I am thinking of something
such as the "brief statement" which occurs at the end of Frederick
Wiseman's _Titicut Follies_, stating that changes have been made at the
MCIB corrections facility since the making of the film.  Does it matter at
all in a strict legal sense that Wiseman puts this statement "after" the
film in a sense?
