I think, or actually, I was told, there is actually a percentage of change, where an image is sufficiently changed from the original. I cant remember how much, and it seems quite retarded that something like that can be mesured at all. But If you look at other art forms, even music, bits and peices of existing work are modified and used without giving any credit.
so after looking it up there is no set percentage or anything, but there is a "doctrine of de minimis" which is not very well described in what it limits and what it allows. It basically protects people from using small insignificant parts of copyrighted works.
