In the old days of copyright protection, a writer used to send
themselves a mailed envelope with the copyrightable contents inside.
The date-stamp proved that on THAT DAY, the material existed in your
possession, since the US Postal Service is considered inviolable.  And
it was only be opened in the presence of the court, so the contents
could be officially recorded during a lawsuit.  So do your newspaper
tricks to protect the front end of the date and mail it to yourself to
protect the back end of the date.  Mail several certified mail, so all
the busybodies at the court feel they're getting their own, personal
peepshow when you have to open it numerous times, so everyone feels
they've witnessed the momentous event...  ;-)
