    Yes. It's also like claiming a cover song as your own (same content, different "instance").

    So if the law is still applied why does it appear there isn't much anyone can do about it it? Or can you and it's just one of those things where the time, effort and money you would put into getting "justice" would end up not being worth it?

    Generally speaking, Copyright law is applied to the manifestation of an idea and not an idea itself. In the case of writing, it is the words; in the case of music, it is the sheet music (so, performances don't really apply, but the initial recording of a performance is considered as relevant a medium for this purpose as an actual transcription); in the case of art, it is the pixels or print, or whatever. That's what it really comes down to at the bottom level. Then there's all sorts of mines in the field -- limits, prohibitions, and legeally binding agreements that further confuse issues.

    Question...I have been told that people could use art work made by someone else, in their own artwork, if it's changed enough ? Is this true?
