Title: Demystifying Copyrights For The Common Man
Post by: Intepat on June 27, 2016, 11:54:04 AM
Though a copyright mandates that the work be original, absolute originality is not a requisite. It has been held, through several judicial decisions, that there should be a minimum threshold of creativity for the work to be original. This was articulated very well in DB Modak v. Eastern Book Company.

Thats true but the copyright holder can claim ownership to only that aspect he has used his creativity not that part of which he has simply copied.
