      They say that this Photo Suit or whatever is a collection of multiple open-source programs that compete with Adobe, not that it's one program or that it is an Adobe product. Their lies are 2: They changed the names of the programs, and they claim that the open-source competitors are available "at a fraction of the price" of Adobe products, as if Scribus, Inkspcape, etc can't be had for free.

        Not true. You can sue, but to encourage registration statutory damages are restricted for registered copyright owners. You can still sue for lost profits, the profits made by the infringer and get the court to cease the activities of the infringer.

        In Australia copyright is automatic; ie no registration is necessary or even possible:

        There is no system of registration for copyright protection in Australia. Copyright protection does not depend on publication, a copyright notice, or any other procedure. Copyright protection is free and automatic from the moment your work is on paper, or disk, or otherwise put into ?material form?.

        Also any country that has signed the Berne Convention are required to uphold the copyright from any country that has also signed it.

        The USA probably has that registration system. Interestingly enough there's a (rather misleading) company called Copyright Australia that sells International Copyright Registration. It's not affiliated with the Australian Copyright Office

          Copyright is automatic basically everywhere. USA has this registration on top of that. For some reason the lawmakers there consider it superior and encourage it by making it easier to collect damages for infringement of registered works.
