This information is taken directly from the court opinion. It is not taken out of context nor is it altered.

In Precious Moments vs La Infantil, 1997, (D.P.R.) 971 F.Supp. 66, the court stated:

This Court agrees with the Lee court that Mirage and the subsequent cases read the originality requirement out of the definition of "derivative work" and open the door for the most trivial of modifications to generate an infringing derivative work. Applying the proper standard to the case at bar, the Court finds that the necessary element of originality is absent from the items manufactured for La Infantil from the Precious Moments fabric. They therefore do not constitute "derivative works" infringing on Precious Moments' copyright. Precious Moments thus does not carry its burden of showing a likelihood of success on the merits on its copyright claim, and the Court need not consider the remaining requirements for a preliminary injunction.
