To register a pictorial or graphic work that is fixed in a CD-ROM the applicant must submit one complete copy of the entire CD-ROM package, regardless of whether the work is published or unpublished. If the work is fixed in print as well as the CD-ROM, the applicant also should submit a printed version of the work that is embodied in the CD- ROM. 37 C.F.R. § 202.20 (C) (2)(xix) (A).
A complete copy of a published CD-ROM package includes all of the elements comprising the applicable unit of publication, “including elements that if considered separately would not be copyrightable subject matter or could be the subject of a separate
registration” and “including a complete copy of any accompanying operating software and instructional manual.” Id.
