Erik Anderson is a copyright holder in BusyBox since he has
written portions of it. Registering copyright merely affirms
his rights, but does not affect the ownership rights of others:

    McFarlane’s registrations no more revealed an intent to claim
    copyright in Gaiman’s contributions, as distinct from McFarlane’s
    own contributions as compiler and illustrator, than the copyright
    notices did. The significance of registration is that it is a
    prerequisite to a suit to enforce a copyright.
