Futuredontics, Inc. v. Applied Anagramics, Inc. (complete), 45 USPQ 2d (1998) p.530


derivative work


One web site linked to another, but displayed the other site within a frame. On the outside of the frame there was competing advertising.


Whether putting the frame around the original web page constitutes a transformation.


Putting a frame around a web page is substantial transformation. The framing constituted an unauthorized derivative work. Plaintiff's claim sufficiently alleges a claim for copyright infringement.
