Originality is a *requirement* before copyright is granted.

They say that ignorance of the law is no excuse.
But I guess stupidity explains a lot.

SimplexGrinnell v. Integerated Systems & Power
United Staes District Court
Southern District of New York
    Although the parties presented this issue in terms of
    SimplexGrinnell's copyright in the various revisions
    of the Programmer, each new version constitutes a
    separate derivative work

Merkos L'Inyonei Chinuch v. Otsar Sifrei Lubavitch
United States Court of Appeals
Second Circuit
    We have explained that "`[o]riginality' in [the copyright] context
    `means only that the work was independently created by the author
    (as opposed to copied from other works), and that it possesses at
    least some minimal degree of creativity.'"

You will never be able to separate ownership
claims to establish what is derivative and what is joint in BusyBox.

There is nothing joint in BusyBox because there is no
stated intent by all of its authors to create a joint
