copy

In copyright law, a copy is the physical form in which the creative expression is fixed. Under the Copyright Act, "'Copies' are material object, other than phonorecords, in which a work is fixed by any method now known or later developed, and from which the work can be perceived, reproduced, or otherwise communicated, either directly or with the aid of a machine or device. The term 'copies' includes the material object, other than a phonorecord, in which the work is first fixed." 17 U.S.C. §101.
