The Rule of Transformation

The Rule of Transformation:

I find the notion of transformation is a pretty good question to ask about copyright conundrums. Did the copier transform the work? If yes, then the derivative is not really a “copy”; it’s been transformed, mutated, improved, evolved. That is still a judgement call, but it is the right question.

[Good stuff.]
