Adaptation
If an existing Work serves as the inspiration for the creation of a new Work in which the individual character of the original Work remains recognisable, this is known as an Adaptation or derivative Work (the original Work is then known as the existing work). An Adaptation is only permissible with the approval of the Author of the original work. Examples of this would be a Script based on a novel or a translation that would also be protected in its own Right as a derivative work.
