So let's see.  One one hand we have the definition of what a copy is
in United States copyright law.  On the other hand, we have you
thinking that the definition is "nonsense when it comes to computer

Computer files reside on some tangible medium of expression.  That
is what the "copy" of the computer file is.  A single mediume of
expression can contain many copyrighted works.  Just like a book
of poems or short stories.

Live with it.
