Wow, two in one day. Are you guys lucky!!!
I just read about a Federal Court decision that ruled against Cleanflicks et al. They are no longer allowed to edit DVDs of movies to remove the sex and violence. One of the key issues was whether the modified movies were transformative (added in value) or derivative (just different). The court found that removing content can not add value.
From a Human Factors point of view, I find these totally against everything I know. How many web sites have you improved by removing clutter, outdated content, superfluous animation or graphics, etc? The judges need a good HF course!!!!
