Practical reality means there is a rule like the 60:40 rule, if only 40% of
the pixels have values resembling the original it's ok. Yes, this means you
can legally create some sorts of derivative works - notably collages -
without breaching copyright.

The definition of copyright clearly states that the creator has the right of
its use and its derivatives. Wouldn't a graphic I copied and altered be
considered a derivative?
