A lot has been made about Myows’ role (or potential lack thereof) in the lives of our American users.

Of course, the two are linked. For those who are confused, allow me to clarify:
The question essentially is this: because USCO is available to US users and certain rights are exclusively granted to parties that register their work with this authority, what is the point of using Myows? Here’s my opinion on the matter.
