Someone at nihilistic-kid's journal pointed to http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/html/uscode17/usc_sec_17_00000412----000-.html. This seems to suggest (although I could be misreading it) that it's possible to register a copyright and get full protection of pre-registration (statutory damages and lawyer fees) if you register the item within 3 months of publishing or, more importantly in this case, within 1 month of discovering an infringement. It might well be worth contacting a lawyer about this to find out for certain (ianal, so might have that wrong. It does seem to be what's being suggested though). Coupled with the email, it seems like it would be a pretty open and shut case too
