Re: The code is trivial

There have been copyright cases over the content of restaurant menus. Surprise, surprise, a work involving pictures and writing is copyrighted, even if it's not high art. Books and paintings are also not useful when locked in the back all day.

The specific case I'm recalling involved a PhD student copying some images from a few local menus as part of their dissertation and failing to get permission to use the images.
