U.K. law uses a "sweat of the brow" standard, whereby things like the
white pages *are* copyright; the U.S., by its Constitution, uses an
"originality" standard, which sets a higher barrier.
When I'm stuck in something boring John Cowan
where reading would be impossible or (who loves Asimov too)
rude, I often set up math problems for cowan at ccil.org
myself and solve them as a way to pass http://www.ccil.org/~cowan
the time. --John Jenkins
