I'm a layman;

Isn't the distinction here that we are not talking about an original 
contribution, made by the author, but with an artifact that is nothing 
more then an aggregation of public available material? In the 
jurisdiction i live under (The Netherlands), this will expose you to 
legal actions. If you want to know more, look at the 'Knipselkrant-arrest'.
