Good Copyright Registration "Hygiene" Necessary to Obtain Copyright
Protection over Revised Versions of Software"

    Settlement disagreement leads to copyright ... claims
    The court found that SG was entitled to an injunction against
    copyright infringement. ... The injunction, however, would only
    extend to the particular versions of the programs over which the
    court had proper subject matter jurisdiction. The Second Circuit
    doesn’t allow the kind of general prophylactic injunction that
    other circuits do. (Query whether this rule will fall along with
    the Second Circuit’s ruling rejecting the Tasini settlement, when
    the Supreme Court does reverse.) SG’s remedy for other
    infringements is to register the other versions.

Notice that last sentence. As usual, the links posted by the cranks
demonstrate against their theories.
