: Can the design of a database be copyrighted? For example, if one company displays the information about personal success/failure with a product, and another company provides similar information (but not the same answers/content), is that copyright infringement? I immediately think of online companies like Altavista. If this practice were illegal, wouldn't they be the only search site?
