That's the point of demanding registration in the first place.

Registration is demanded by the statute, 17 USC 411:
    no civil action for infringement of the copyright
    in any United States work shall be instituted until
    preregistration or registration of the copyright
    claim has been made in accordance with this title

The courts have to work out how this part of the law applies
to derivative works and to multiple versions, and I'm not a
lawyer and can't find enough information to know how they're
dealing with it.
