You guys are wrong. The work was likely "Fair- Use." The issue has little to do with "derivative" vs. "transformative" works of art. Take a look at the seminal Fair-Use case involving Sony and it's Beta Max player. The Supreme Court allowed Sony to completely copy the works in their entirety. There was no creating works based on the original work. Sony was copying the complete works. There is a four part test the courts apply. The four factors judges consider are: "1) the purpose and character of your use 2) the nature of the copyrighted work 3) the amount and substantiality of the portion taken, and 4) the effect of the use upon the potential market." No one factor is determinative. IN this case, the use was likely fair use because the use of the copyrighted work likely didn't cause the copyright holder any loss of income.
