Default Question about copyright

Say you copyright a spec. It's 150 pages (this is a made up number) when you copyright it.

But then, down the road, you cut out 30 pages to get the size down.

You start sending your 120 page spec out - it gets sold. Your spec is now the property of a production company. They've only seen the 120 page version you sent them. When you sell it, you transfer the copyright into their name, right?

So who owns those 30 pages you cut out? What if I wanted to use those 30 pages in the future?

Can they somehow get a copy of the 150 page spec through the copyright office?

I assume they own everything at that point including the 150 page version they haven't seen. Would the production company even care about those extra pages?
