Registration is not necessary for ownership of copyright. The author owns what they've written from the moment it is written down. However, registration is necessary to bring a suit in the U.S., since it clearly proves ownership of the work. You can't ask for statutory damages without registration, and statutory damages are often/usually higher than the actual damages in a case like this one.
