According to US copyright law the "physical medium" _is_ the copy:

  TITLE 17 CHAPTER 1 ยง 101. Definitions

  Copies are material objects, 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.
