For example, following the reversed order of digits: 9, 8, 7, ..., 2, 1, and mapping a grid’s 1s into 9s, 2s into 8s, 3s into 7s, and so on, produces a derived grid which, in terms of its relationship with the original, is analogous to a mirror image of an elaborate blueprint and cannot be considered as original work. Application of any such trivial mappings for the purpose of deriving a new design constitutes protected use of this work and is subject to the above restrictions.
