Diagram key list
- May 31, 2010 @ 10:19pmfootballknee says:My question pertains to technical diagrams. These diagrams often use numbers to label the components and then provide a text-based "key" which is a list of the component names and their associated numbers, instead of cluttering the diagram by including component names in the diagram itself.
Obviously, the diagram is copyrighted material. But what of the key? My understanding is that a non-creative list, such as a list of all components involved in a given assembly, does not constitute copyrightable expression. But does the fact that the list is numbered change anything?
