This was prompted from "Sign on the dotted line kid" but that thread sort of went off at an angle!

I have a friend who copyrights his music by putting the sheet music in an envelope and then posts it to himself. The postage mark then on the stamp dates the tune as long as the envelope remains sealed.

Has anyone got thoughts on this form of copyrighting and would it stand up in court?
