GUEST,Mark are translations copyrighted? (4) RE: are translations copyrighted? 17 Jun 06


I'm not sure I know if you understand all aspects of the question, with your answers (whether or not the original person asking did).

Anyway, my slant on the question is,

if there is an ancient public domain resource in a foreign language, and you translate it into English, can you own the copyright of the translation? No one can own the copyright for the original (seeing as it's public domain).
