Wordpress Plugin Doesn't Save Options

I am working through the Wordpress Bible, and as usual, a programming book has errors in the code.

This code is ridiculously simple (supposedly); however, it doesn't save anything to the database.

here's the issue:

The plugin load fine.
It activates fine.
It displays the menu fine
But if you enter in the data to be saved to the DB, it doesn't save it.

I know the problem is that the add_action() is the failure point (specifically, because it specifies load-copyright-notices.php as the hook, which is not a hookable function / action).

The issue is... I don't know how to fix it.

How do I fix this?
