Re: How much must pics change to avoid copyright infringement?

It's only an issue if it confuses people as to which work is the original, or if it devalues the original work.

Transformative works, such as collages, legally "get away" with using pre-created images as "fair use" because of the above statement.

Oh, how I agree that those most paranoid are often those least in danger...
