    Wrong gender

    From the context I think the teenager is a girl, the context being that the cited industry best practices are both female. Also, having been a teenage boy myself, I doubt that a boy would burst into tears, although he might well storm upstairs.

    The headline should say "... Finds Her Mom Waited Up For Her."

    It's not true that the next registrar must realize the copyright serves the public. The word "must" means to be obliged or bound to <do something>, to need to <do something> or to to be required or compelled to <do something>. Since the current registrar evidently does not realize that copyright serves the public, there is no necessity for the next one to do so. What you really mean by "must" is that you wholeheartedly want the next registrar to have that realization, but there is no compulsion to do so. This may appear to be nitpicky, but accuracy of language is important.

    And while I'm at it, you should say that copyright should serve the pubic or that it was intended to do so, not that it in fact does. As you have pointed out, in many cases it does not.
