1103.1 (B) The Unit Must Contain an Actual Copy or Phonorecord of the Works
The unit must contain an actual copy or phonorecord of the self-contained works. A unit that merely contains a representation of the works does not satisfy this requirement.
For example, a box of jewelry containing an actual necklace and an actual set of earrings that are packaged together and sold to the public as a single, integrated unit would be considered a unit of publication. By contrast, a catalog that merely contains photographs of necklaces and earrings that are offered for sale would not be considered a unit of publication, even if members of the public may order these items from the catalog either on an individual basis or as a set. The catalog could be used to register a claim in the selection, coordination, and/or arrangement of the photographs, but not the actual items depicted in those images.
