But there have been no lawsuits, just out of court settlements in favor
of the plaintiffs.

As to registration, look at this: <>
among others.  While you clearly need either a registration application
or a refusal before going to trial, it is not at all clear that one is
required before filing.  If the court does insist on one (which it will
only do if the defendant brings it up) and you don't have it when you
file your case will merely be dismissed without prejudice and with
instructions to refile after you get it.

It is also not clear to me that the complaint must mention the
registration status of the work.
