Yes, most definitely. The instinct is to assume that all information is correct.

You're right, Grace. And then sometimes the validator
doesn't realize that the submitter didn't do it
correctly. I think sometimes he/she assumes that
copyright info is correct and starts validating with
the actually main content, and thus doesn't change
that part of the upload. I've seen that, too.

Cindy

As a validator I have found that many times
submitters fill out the copy
right field incorrectly. Many times they put the
publisher when it clearly
states that the author is the copy right holder.
There are even some that put the title as the copy
right holder.
I think peiple find it difficult to determine who
the copy right holder is.
