    I never bring it up, but sometimes clients have done so. I'll explain my viewpoint, then advise them to see an attorney about it if they really want to register it.

    did you check the links in the frequently discussed topics thread? I know that Jeff Fisher's list is pretty comprehensive and is broken down into categories... check out the book lists here:
