 In your previous mail you wrote:

   This is the same issue. If I give a burned CDROM with OCaml on it (or
   more realistically my own Free Software made with OCaml), should I
   register it?
   
=> the law applies when you give it to a public so IMHO it applies
if you sell it, even for free, or distribute it in a conference, etc,
but not when you give it to your friends.
As I've said it is an extension to the 500 year old law for books
to softwares on physical medium.
