HOUSE REPORT NO. 94-1476: 

A ''compilation'' results from a process of selecting, bringing 
together, organizing, and arranging previously existing material 
of all kinds, regardless of whether the individual items in the 
material have been or ever could have been subject to copyright 
[...] an unauthorized translation of a novel [i.e. derivative work] 
could not be copyrighted at all, but the owner of copyright in an 
anthology of poetry [i.e. compilation] could sue someone who 
infringed the whole anthology, even though the infringer proves 
that publication of one of the poems was unauthorized. 


(GNG is a derecursive recursive derecursion which pwns GNU since it can 
be infinitely looped as GNGNGNGNG...NGNGNG... and can be said backwards 
too, whereas GNU cannot.)
