An IPKat reader wishes to know, have there been any cases which have interpreted the notion of the "author's own intellectual creation" under the protection of databases through standard copyright (rather than the sui generis database right)? How does this differ from the traditional 'sweat of the brow' concept in UK copyright?

The IPKat would be grateful if you would send your bright ideas to him and he will forward them to the questioner.
