I want to register a software package with the US copyright office but it is not new. There are many versions. What versions should I register? Should I register the very first version as the original work and then select versions as derived works?
For example, let's say there are versions like:
1.0.0 1.0.1 1.0.2 ... 1.0.88 1.1.0 1.1.1 ... 1.1.46 2.0.0 2.0.1 ... 2.0.26 (current)
and so on. Should I register 1.0.0 as the original work and the current version (2.0.26) as a derived work for a total of only two versions?
What if I want to file suit for infringement regarding 1.1.22? Is that version covered if I only register 1.0.0 and 2.0.26 in my example?
Note: I know this question was asked before to some extent but it was not actually answered.
