Okay. As long as you're dealing with expressive wholes,
you're standing on legal precedent.

It would help if some stipulations were made to assure that
it's clear you're talking about the original presentations,
presentations to which the author asserts authoritative
origin, and presentations of originality that may be false.
The factual elements of any expressive work are fair game.
This is essential from the standpoint of free online

Now, much as I might sound like it, I am not a lawyer.
